It seems like Bill is always the first to comment on the morning stories and the tone is always negative. Maybe I'm wrong, or it's a different Bill. Bill have a nice day and please have a kind thought towards the family of the police officer who is fighting for his life. I'm trying to convey kindness in my message, not sarcasm.

My grand daughter and a DVC classmate were stranded on the freeway after this horrible incident. They contacted their teacher who told them that this would be an absence counted against their grade.........

Our family's thoughts and prayers are with the officer and his family.

To Grandma---contact the head of administration--this teacher obviously can't think outside the box.

I just can't fathom such a terrible occurrence: I am praying for Kenyon's family today. What a tragedy that there are some people capable of pulling that trigger just because an officer is performing his duties to protect the public. I have deep admiration for law enforcement, every day is a personal risk. Nonetheless I can't help but pray for the suspect's family as well: they too have lost a family member and no doubt a loved one: I just hope that the suspect's family doesn't report, as is often the case, that he was a wonderful kind man who would never hurt a fly and was a victim of society letting him down. It is a sad day.....
