Another introduction to the New Normal.

On Wednesday I attended my youngest granddaughter's graduation from high school. It was at an outdoor venue with thousands attending. It was a gorgeous day. At the start, before the actual beginning of the ceremonies, one of the officials came up to the microphone and announced that in case of a catastrophic event to please make our way to your nearest exit and proceeded to give further instructions. Many of us looked at each other and realized what he was referring to and the reality of our world at least momentarily cast a bit of pall over the crowd of parents and relatives holding balloons and flowers and you could see on the faces, oh, holy hell.
