A time to reflect
On Monday morning, shots were fired reportedly by a lone gunman at Chardon High School and five students were shot - one was confirmed as a fatality, and possibly a second one as of this evening. Wednesday, the Hilltoppers will try to play a sectional semifinal game against Madison at the Division I Euclid District.
Could anything be less important than a basketball game 48 hours away from such a tragedy?
My heart goes out to the players, coaches, students, administrators, teachers and the entire Chardon community in such a horrific, inexplicable time. I just hope if there is a game Wednesday between Madison and Chardon that fans and every one on hand at Euclid High School is respectful to the situation and the participants.
I am usually excited about covering postseason basketball games. This one is a little different for all the wrong reasons.
Prayers for Chardon. Keep everything in perspective, folks.
