You see, the Nuke works at the Washington Navy Yard.
So I called, she and her colleagues were okay but had been ordered to "shelter in place". Her building sits across an intersection from Building 197, where the shootings occurred.
There is a parking garage on the Yard, where the Nuke parks her car (when she doesn't ride the Metro in). There is a cafeteria in Building 197, where she and a colleague were going to go get some breakfast. Shortly before they left, all Hell broke loose.
The parking garage, a crime scene.
The cafeteria, a crime scene.
She and her colleagues had front row seats for this latest American tragedy. I was on the phone with her throughout most of the morning. I also had WJLA Live up on my computer. We were keeping each other informed as best we could.
It was good being able to talk with my oldest daughter throughout this incident.
It was good being able to talk with her when she finally got back to her apartment in the evening.
For us, this day, this tragic day, is over. We feel blessed by God that our daughter and her colleagues were safe.
For some, this day will never be over...
Please say a prayer for those who lost their lives. Please say a prayer for those they left behind.
There but for the Grace of God...
