straight out of a movie.

in Grand Rapids

After work, I had to go out and buy a gift for my cousin’s baby shower this weekend.  Since I was driving right past Chipotle, I knew what was on deck for dinner!  I heart Chipotle so, so much!

I had the vegetarian burrito with rice, black beans, fajita vegetables, salsa, guacamole, and lettuce.


By the time I got home, the news story that had just started to break when I left work had exploded.  The last I heard was seven people were murdered in Grand Rapids.  It evolved into a police chase of the suspect through the city with shots fired at one of the biggest intersections in the downtown area (ironically right in front of the police department headquarters).  The suspect is currently holed up in a house where he has two hostages!

I have been absolutely glued to the news coverage of this whole story.  It is something straight out of a movie, but happening right in my city!  I feel a bit more at ease now that I’ve heard from everyone I know who lives around the area where the major drama went down, but it’s still a scary situation.  It is definitely one of those “I never thought something like this would happen here” kind of moments.  I am a strong believer that anything can happen anywhere, but no less, it’s still shocking when it actually does happen.

My thoughts and prayers go out to all those who lost a loved one today, as well as for safety for the police still at the scene.
