I recall how blue the sky was that day. No clouds in sight. A pristine and beautiful morning, overshadowed by the disbelief and sorrow that followed. My heart still aches. I grieve for the victims, their families, and friends, but also for how this act of violence altered all of us. How it instilled fear and suspicion. How it reduced our tolerance. How it changed our country.
