My family is sad today. My community is shocked.
My son-in-law's best friend was murdered yesterday. He was stabbed in the chest by his wife during a domestic dispute. I have no details at this point. I don't know the wife's side of the story. When I hear news like this I always wonder WHY? How could this have been prevented? A young man in the prime of his life, by all accounts one of the nicest guys you will ever meet, tragically gone.
And I think about choices....life really boils down to choices. So many choices we make every day, even seemingly insignificant choices, can impact our lives forever. It is important to make good choices.
I wonder if different choices could have been made in the lives of these 2 young people with so much ahead of them. Choices that could have prevented this tragic end. It is a tragedy for the wife and her family as well. She is in custody, charged with murder. Her life is forever changed too.
Hold your loved ones close, take nothing for granted, life can change in an instant.
Praying for a kinder, gentler, world today
