Hi. Mom here. A little over one year ago, four terrible young men broke into a home and brutally murdered the mother and nearly killed the daughter. The eleven year old girl received her black belt from my favorite guest instructor (a student of my studio owner). The trial for one of the men started this week. I am having a hard time reading about the trial and not wishing this young man dead or burning in Hades for all eternity. You might say, don't read it, but I need to read it, if for no other reason than to support this family. I can't sit around and wait for a verdict, even though I am pretty sure what the verdict will be. I am astounded by the cold blooded, heartless attack, the brutality of it, and the courage with which both mother and daughter fought. It is hard to be light hearted when you are faced with this type of evil.
Tell your family members what is in your heart, that you love them and how much they mean to you. Lock your doors, put sensor lights up and praise your pug every time they bark at someone coming into your house. Be thankful for what you have and pray that you never have to face this type of situation. You never know what the day or the night brings, just hope you have the strength to face whatever comes your way.
Thanks for letting me vent. Here's a cutie to look at. Hope she makes you smile.
