What is this world coming to?  First the horrific violence at Virginia Tech and now a gunman at the NASA-Johnson Space Center?  For background, I worked in the space industry for nearly 3 years between college and having my daughter.  I have a masters in space studies and worked on site at JSC as well as off site with contractors.  This has really hit home for me.  JSC always seemed like such a safe environment to me, similar to a college campus (ironically).  I loved working there, feeling like everyone was working towards the same goal and now a crazy person, for whatever reason, has torn the fabric of the safe environment and it will probably never completely return to normal.

God bless JSC and Virginia Tech.
