I will give a shout out to the Mayfield band as well - anyone with the bravery to feature Black Sabbath in their half-time show deserves some props.
By the way, our team went down fighting to Mayfield. All the kids played with spirit! (And I hope the Mayfield boys didn't get in too much trouble for the three touchdowns that got called back due to holding penalties. Ouch!)
I'm a bit slow in posting this and unfortunately even those of you far away may recognize the name "Willoughby South" after this week. Tuesday, Rosie's school was the scene of a shooting. A young man who didn't want to hurt anyone but himself it would seem. Luckily, the Principal and Assistant Principal ran toward the gun shots instead of away from them and were able to talk him down before any human life was lost. NPR's All Things Considered presented an interview with the Vice Principal that was very well done. I've talked to Rosie's parents and they say she is adjusting just fine - no drama for her. I've been thinking a lot about those kids this week. A pleasant Ohio suburb, nice kids, things like this shouldn't happen here or anywhere for that matter.
Here's hoping that this is the worst these kids have to face this year and in the future.
