Senseless

In our school family, we have a volunteer who is the sweetest, kindest, nicest, most loving thing. She is the most beautiful person. Her children are all kind and respectful. She truly feels that it's her job to serve US. She won't accept any gifts of thanks.

The evening of our flood, her family went out to eat. Afterward, the two older boys decided to walk home while the rest of the family ran an errand.

One the way home, the boys were both attacked. The older son (early twenties) was beaten so severely that he needed surgery to remove his spleen. He is home now and recovering well.

The attackers are still at large. All they got that night? Two dollars.

Be careful out there. There have been a rash of crimes in our area. I imagine in yours as well. People are getting desperate and reacting in a negative way.

This makes me feel truly sick. I am so saddened that these wonderful people had to go through that. I'll be praying for them too.

That is so very sad. I can't believe people out there like that actually exist. This is why I don't go anywhere alone at night. I've always been paranoid when it comes to walking at night outside... you just never know.

Saying prayers. Hope all is well.

That is awful! As more people lose their jobs, crime will most likely increase. When that happens, our government will be MORE stimulus money to put more cops on the streets, then MORE stimulus money to build more prisons... and on and on and on.
Scary times!
