Hello to everyone who this post may reach.
It's been awhile since I last posted on here.
I'm needing a safe place to share in addition to get professional help, tomorrow I will be making a phone call. Until I'm able to see someone.
Twitter limiting as we all know in addition to all of the Troll's and I really don't want to share on Facebook.
On Tuesday of this week we had a shooting across the street from where we live, DV where the shooter took his own life, his partner survived with injuries to her hand, leg and stomach, she's definitely going to need therapy without a doubt.
I want to respect her privacy as well I don't know her or any of the circumstances in this situation.
My family had been sitting in our living room just after my daughter got home from school, when it occurred.
My husband who has a military background recognize the sound of the gun shot and he told us all to get down on the floor, He looked outside seeing a man chasing a woman firing a hand gun, My husband grabbed our phone to call 911 in addition to us all moving to the front of the house. After speaking to 911 he ran upstairs to check on my 21 year old son, who managed to sleep through it only because his room is on the front side of the house away from the noise of it all.
My husband then when outside to assist with traffic until the RCMP arrived, since he witnessed a good portion of what happens he had to provide the RCMP a statement of what he saw. I stayed inside with my 11yr old daughter and 8 yr old son. I didn't see anything until after the Ambulances left and the RCMP started their investigation.
I guess you could say that I'm still in shock of it all. I know that we have Gun violence here in Canada we are no exception, however it's not like it is to the boarder.
Right now I'm having a hard time being comfortable in my own home. We have additional issues here and this was the Cherry on top.
I realized that I don't feel comfortable inside our living room is due to the fact I was afraid to be near the window or look out it, not knowing what was going on outside has left me feeling unsafe in my home.
