Mood Killer

November 29th, 2016 by John Mansfield

I spent the Thanksgiving weekend in the home of a relative who became, in the course of his four years as a medical student at the University of Michigan, a Michigan football fan. Michigan’s series with Ohio State goes back to 1897, has been played annually since 1918, and it has been played in November as the teams’ last regular season game since 1935.

This year’s game was a great one. The Wolverines arrived in Columbus with a 10-1 record and ranked #3 in national playoff standings. The Buckeyes were also 10-1 and ranked #2. Attendance was a stadium record 110,045, and it was this season’s most-watched college football game on television. Ohio State won in double overtime 30-27. What a great weekend to enjoy being a Buckeye!

Then, two mornings later . . . eleven people “including at least one faculty member, one staff member and seven students” were sent to hospitals for treatment of injuries inflicted upon them by a student who was shot dead by a policeman to stop the student’s attack. Celebrate while you may, for it may not fit tomorrow’s mood.

1 To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven:

2 A time to be born, and a time to die; a time to plant, and a time to pluck up that which is planted;

3 A time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up;

4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;
