Don’t forget about the 28th death

As we continue to grieve, I find some encouragement in compassionate words and actions from neighbors in Red Lake and Bemidji, including the 27-minute tribute walk Friday in downtown Bemidji for 27 of the victims of the Connecticut tragedy.

I only hope that we will walk a 28th minute, perhaps in a manner different from the first 27 minutes, but still with sorrow and prayer, even in our anger. Twenty-eight minutes for 28 victims, including a person who has caused such suffering.
