The word of shootings at the Jewish Community Center in suburban Kansas City reached me early Sunday evening. An all-too-familiar array of emotions coursed through me – grief for lives cut so randomly short, shock that something could cause a person to arbitrarily take these lives.
I immediately reached out to Jewish colleagues knowing that this would be deeply wounding to them and wanting to stand in solidarity as a friend and partner.
