A perspective from Oregon’s mid-Willamette Valley

This was my view of the Yachats River at low tide Saturday afternoon. Tranquil scenes like this, and lots of time spent riding bikes, tend to make us forget that the world is not a peaceful place. Then we get word of an event, like the mass shooting in Florida Sunday morning. That reminds us how things really are.
