On that awful night...

Tuesday, July 24, 2012

Tragedy seems to be all around us...if you watch or listen to the can't help but see how awful the world is...which is why for the most part, i stay away from watching or listening to it... a couple stories may get my attention... earlier this year one of those stories was of a girl and a couple boys that my daughters went to school with were arrested for running a meth house and worse...the murder of the girls child...i follow that story... and i cry for what that baby had to endure just a couple short years on this world... then earlier last week, a boy, just 16, killed by a hit and run driver.... my oldest daughter went to school with his nieces knew him...he will be buried tomorrow...his life ended way too soon... i cry for his families loss...and his friends loss... and then we come to the end of the week...the Colarado massacre... at first i feared... i have family that live there... and i checked their facebook page...and nothing had been posted...then i found out they were safe and sound and no where near that theatre that night... i still cried for all those victims and their families... and the stories of men dying to save their loved ones... little did i know then that one of those boys was someones son that i worked with...then i cried all over again....not only for those i have never met... but for those that i had... their son...still so young... taken way too early... being a hero and shielding his girlfriend from those bullets... i can't even begin to imagine what that family is going through...2 sons and the ones girlfriend was at the theater that night...both boys jumped to shield the girl...she did take a bullet but had surgery and is recovering... the other living with the scars of a lost brother and all that had happened that night...and the boy...the hero... that is no longer with us.... i think of all that was taken way too early from this world that night... the 6 yr old... the aspiring news anchor that had lived through one mall massacre in her life...just to lose her life that night... soldiers that protect us from come home to lose their life...and then the hero's that lost their own lives shielding their girlfriends...

i know this is a depressing blog post...but i feel it needs to be written... for myself... and for remember them... each way too young.

Normally i don't post fundraisers for certain causes...because each one has so many good things that they need help with and their is just no way to support each cause... but this one has me by the heartstrings... not only because i am a very thankful for her 3 children.... but because of the dear woman i work with...and the son she no longer has... please, even if you can't support monetary wise, at least please send a hug their way...
