Breaking News this morning, January 25th, 2014: Shooting at the Mall in Columbia, MD
That is not a headline I could have ever imagined.
Columbia, MD is considered a safe place to live. In 2012 it was voted the eighth best small city to live in the USA by CNNMoney.
I live and work in Howard County, MD and just passed by the Mall in Columbia yesterday on my way to showing houses. It is practically at my door step.
Breaking News this morning, shockingly and unbelievably, it's all about the Mall in Columbia, MD.
However, it won't stop me from promoting Columbia, MD as a great place to live, work and play. This planned community has so much to offer. The shooting does not define the city.
It's the act of one crazy, violent individual who lacked morals, integrity, empathy and respect. He does not represent what Howard County and Columbia, MD stand for - no matter how much the media will sensationalize the shooting.
My heart goes out to the victims (3 are believed dead at this point in time) and their families.
