I got a phone call this morning from my best friend of over 40 years. Her nephew, who has a college degree in IT, and who was in training to be a truck driver (he couldn't find any work in his field), was brutally murdered by an ex-student last Monday night. This animal kidnapped, then proceeded to rob and shoot this poor boy in the head...several times, before leaving him in the parking lot of an ATM.
Thank God they caught this guy, but the damage has already been done. My heart aches for my dear friend, for I know what she is going through. 22 years ago, my 77-year-old aunt (my late father's older sister), was stabbed to death by her yardman, who had just gotten out of prison only two months before, on drug charges.
I just don't understand.
