As I have noted a couple of times on this blog, my familly and I are privileged to attend a wonderful church here in Cincinnati -- Crossroads Community Church. For the past two years, the church has put on a free Christmas show, which is attended by over 25,000 people over its week-long run. At last night's opening performance, something went horribly wrong. Keri Shryock, a 23-year-old Xavier University graduate student playing the role of a wise man, was killed when she fell while being suspended 20-feet in the air by an overhead cable. We are all shocked and devastated by this terrible accident. Here are some details from the church and the local paper.
