My mom works in GIS on floor 2. She happened to leave work early today to go shopping with me before I leave for the summer. Makes me wonder what could’ve happened if I had stayed at school. Tonight was hard to hear her talking to and crying with her coworkers as they’re trying to figure out who’s alive. It’s scary. I don’t work there personally but I had visited the building and met a lot of people on her floor. I could’ve even seen you. And now the building’s been described as looking like a warzone. I just don’t know how to process it yet.It’s insane. It’s a public building, people go there to get fence permits, pay water bills, and discuss drainage complaints. The most conflict I get at my job is arguing that someone needs a site plan or not. It’s unbelievable to see something like this happen.This was literally 5 minutes from my house. I only found out about it after i drove down the street to get McDonalds and saw a fuck ton of cop cars everywhere. It’s a very surreal and scary feeling knowing that 11 people died about a mile and a half away from where you were peacefully watching TV.
