I adore my sweet and safe and sleepy hometown + was shocked to hear the news.
My dad said it best :
Wise words regarding the impact of this tragedy on this small, interconnected town. One victim spoke kind words to my son when he was a young teen; another always offered a smile and friendly words when I saw her at work; another was the father of schoolmates. I could walk from my office to the scenes of these horrific crimes in minutes. The connection are at once chilling, and a reminder of why I love this place. Chin up, Moscow. People we all know are rocked to the core and need our help.
