    Incomprehensible. Similar to my family’s tragedy in 1972 in Savannah. How can people do this to each other? Even when we know the structure to recover, it is in G-d’s hands, do chesed, be kinder…it is a life long recovery process both for the victim’s family and friends, the shooters’ circle, and the city, now marked temporarily as a city of shame.
