My heart goes out to everyone affected by the Clackamas Town Center shootings yesterday afternoon.  To the families of the deceased including the shooter and to the young lady who is recovering from her injuries and her family, my prayers are with you during this difficult time. To all the patrons of the mall, I’m so…
