Tears & Prayers for Fort Hood

As an Army wife, living on an Army post, yesterday's tragic events completely shocked me. I'm sure they shocked the country. My first thought was of Christina and her family. Luckily I was able to reach her right away and they were all well, although her husband was in class under lock-down and her oldest daughter was at school, also under lock-down. This was for their safety and we understand that, but it's so hard when things of this nature occur and you can't be with your loved ones immediately. My heart ached for those stranded off-post and unable to reach their loved ones by phone.

It will take some time for the investigations to be conducted and all the questions we have to be answered. I would hope that for just once, the mainstream media would only relate SUBSTANTIATED FACTS, and not pure speculation!!! We don't need drama added to this situation! We need news for information, not something pulled from your ass because you need to fill up some time!

Our thoughts and prayers are with all those who were killed and wounded yesterday and for their families. My prayer is also that Fort Hood can come together in unity, and that any ethic tensions be dispelled without any further violence. We have been badly shaken, but we are still and always will be, Army Strong!

HOOAH!!

The media is dramatic? Really? I'm sure that NEVER happens? ;) ;)

It really is a tragedy when someone ends the lives of so many so senselessly. It's scary to realize that it can happen to anyone, anywhere. I hope the families and people involved receieve comfort and closure so that they can continue to live their lives without fear.

I am praying! I have a friend, her husband, and their two very young boys, that live on post at Ft. Hood, and I was able to talk to her yesterday and know they were all okay. What a tragedy...so sad! :(

It's heartbreaking for our whole nation, but I'm sure so much more so for you that are in the military.

Hugs & love

It enrages me that this shooter is a psychiatrist, and attacked his fellow brothes/sisters in arms.

Just shows you that no one is immune to psychotic tendencies.

I think its hard hearign about this kind of tragedy anywhere, but when you are in TEXAS, and many military friends it is harder. My heart goes out to all those families. Its been on our local news channels all day!

My heart goes out to the victims and their families. I am so glad Christina's family is safe and unharmed but what a scary time, huh? I pray that somehow something good can come of all this but right now I have no idea what that might be! Gentle Hugs!!!

My prayers go out to the families and victims, too. When my sister told me over the phone that this had happened, my first instinct was to look out the windows, because I live on an Army post, too! I actually thought for a moment that closing the blinds might offer us some protection us if there was an attack. Such a sad day.
