Back to School, 2023
This has been one hell of a week.
It was the first week of school and normally I would be talking about that. But it hasn't been a normal week in our neck of the woods.
On Monday, the first day of school, a PhD student at UNC walked into the on campus lab where he conducted research and shot his professor and PhD advisor. He then fled the scene and caused chaos for the rest of the afternoon as authorities attempted to arrest him and recover the murder weapon. While the shooter was found, the gun has yet to be recovered.
UNC went on lockdown. The local schools were on lockdown. That's right. On the first day of school, all the students in our district had to deal with a lockdown because of a live shooter. By the time the lockdown was lifted, school dismissal was in chaos. Justin didn't get home on the bus until 6pm.
Welcome back to school in 2023.
