Thank you, Geoff, for this post. I still get a chill every time I am reminded of this horror. When it comes to this kind of evil, we must never forget, never forgive - and never give up.

I will always hold the memory of Todd Beemer as ideal of purpose. When he found himself in the middle of this nightmare, he sent a message of love to his family, recited the Lord's Prayer, and rallied his fellow passengers.

Closer to home, we are now entering election season. Costa Mesa: Let's roll.
