man... I'm super sorry she had to go through that.

Yeah.

She spent this whole weekend at a weapons training class, getting some serious situational training. She's always been a responsible gun owner, and is already properly trained on weapons handling. But she has doubled-down on her training now.

It is an interesting response to the situation.

I expect she is still not processing a lot of it. Pushing it down. Suppressing it. That's kinda who she is... beautiful and flashy on top, but that's hiding self-doubt and some other issues I don't know much about.

Doubling-down on her situational weapons training is another attempt to cover some internal doubts she may have. Well... that's my internal armchair psychologist's diagnosis, at least.

based on her lifestyle... the statistical probability of her ever being in this situation again is so minimal.

    I expect she is still not processing a lot of it.

I've thought about her more than a few times since I read this post. Taking a life - even when apparently justified... can take a toll. I hope she's got a decent support system.

That's what friends are for...
