This was a hard week. If you didn’t hear, on Monday Toronto had a van attack. Ten people are dead and 14 others are wounded after a man purposefully ran over people on Yonge St. I couldn’t believe it when I saw the news. Even now it’s still hard to wrap my head around because you just want to know why? He was apprehended soon after but the reason behind the attack is still not certain. A Toronto Fundraising site has raised 1.5 million as of now, so here is the link if you wish to donate to the cause.
On a more positive note they caught the Golden State Killer after 40 years using online DNA sites. This has caused a slight uproar in the Geneology/DNA research community in regards to accessing peoples’ DNA without their “permission” to help them solve this crime. Lots of people say it’s a slippery slope (I hate that term) but I say if you can use my DNA to help find a criminal than use it. If you can use my DNA to try to solve cold cases, to help find the identities of Jon and Jane Does, and even to understand and potentially cure genetic diseases then please do. While I initially took the DNA test it was to piece together my heritage because my dad was adopted. But the potential is so much more than I even realized.
