I have mentioned before that we live in the most violent city in the United States. Year after year, St Louis tops that horrible list.
And yet, somehow we feel insulated from the violence on this side of the river. It's a rare day that we have a murder over here.
Yesterday the evening news featured this story .
As I watched the news coverage I had the really sickening realization that the building on tv was our pediatrician's office. Where we were sitting 4 days ago with Jack, waiting to see our ped.
A building filled with children and pregnant women and newborn babies.
Sometimes this is a scary, scary world.
