A Horrible Day for Omaha

Pray for the victims of this horrible tragedy. This is a dark and awful day for the citizens of our city.

As I reject several comments during an obviously sensative time, I can't believe the nerve some of you have during a time like this.

We truly live in a sad society.

To those of you who can not separate banter and opinion from true life...I pity you.

Events such as this put things into perspective - for those of us able to have perspective, that is. It's disappointing that you are receiving comments like that. What's sadder is that it's not surprising to me. You are right - we live in a sad society.

God bless those who have been touched by this tragedy.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all. This is a sad day in the great state of Nebraska, it makes football and any sport for that matter seem so small in the big sceam of things.

I for one will take a long look at things and take 2 steps back.

I agree 100% Mark. Sports are great because we can act as sworn enemies one minute...and yet grieve as brothers in light of tradgedy.

They are simply a grand diversion from the horrors and beauty of everyday life. We are lucky to have them, as we are to have each other to spar with and call each other names.

I hope this night finds you and your family well. (And this goes to everyone in this city and this state, regardless of what team they like to cheer for)

There are so many more important things in life.

As someone with friends and relatives in Omaha and the greater state, I share your sentiments and you all have my prayers.

And AJ, if I were you, I would be very tempted to publish the names (if you have the names) of those petty and heartless people who posted thoughtless, or worse, comments. However, you did the right thing by taking the higher road. Good on you.

hbf thanks.

People can say what they want about me..obviously I bring it upon myself. But still....there are so many more important things in the world than stuff I talk about here.

It's sad that some people don't understand. I wish I could make them get it...but I can not.

People ask me, "why don't you move". I don't want to move. This is home and I am lucky I guess, because I can remove sports from day-to-day life. That is where we run into trouble, because many people apparently can't tell the difference between the two.

AJ, et al:

You gentlemen articulated my sentiments better than I could possibly have.
Family, friends, and strangers in Nebraska will be in my prayers.

Good morning everyone. It is days like this that remind me that without exception, we are all in this together.

For those who can, it is a good time to hug your family a few extra times, and, say the things you have been putting off, as you just never know these days.

God bless to all
