A Goleta Moment

image

Amid all of the heartbreaking stories coming out of the senseless tragedy in Isla Vista, all of us here at The Golden West Review want to extend our heartfelt sympathies to the victims, their loved ones, to our friends in and around the UCSB campus. You are all in our thoughts and our prayers. I have posted a photograph of one of the places on the grounds of UCSB that we have always found so healing. Sea, sand, sky, and bluff come together, and walking through this simple circular maze of stone is a physical meditation that seems designed to re-center a shaken soul.

May everyone touched by this event find a way to honor those taken from us by turning our horror into something profound and positive. Even as we never forget the departed, may we move forward united in our resolve to spare others from this kind of pain.

Have a blessed week.
