Virginia state Sen. Creigh Deeds was released from the hospital this morning, three days after his 24-year-old son apparently stabbed him several times before taking his own life with a gun. The Democratic lawmaker took to Twitter to offer his first public comments since the death of his son. Deeds, understandably, appears to be struggling to make sense of everything.
I am alive so must live. Some wounds won't heal. Your prayers and your friendship are important to me— Creigh Deeds (@CreighDeeds) November 22, 2013
