Such a sad, sad day

Thursday, August 26, 2010

A friend's daughter went missing on Saturday night. They found her body Tuesday morning, burned beyond recognition. A positive ID was made just this morning. Who could do this to a 14 year old freshman in high school?? My daughter is the same age, both were cheerleaders, although in schools 5 hours apart. I am filled with sadness, grief and anger today over this. Please pray with me for the family of Alicia. This will be such a hard time for them and all who knew her.

    So far no suspect and no person of interest has been released. All that has been released is that she left with a 19 year old male friend. Jo, I love the way your mind works. You are so right. There are so many things wrong with our country. We live in a rural community and tragedy like these happen in our small town. It's not just a "big city" thing anymore. Thank you all for your thoughts and prayers today.

    Ahhh Julie JO...you're going to get a taste of how my brain ticks now!! We wonder what is wrong with the world and people...how do these things happen? Such atrocities....The news is filled with these awful stories, and then they go happily to the weather report...I have multiple college degrees, and I worked in tv in nyc for quite a while. It seems like there is no REAL sympathy...during the 60's, a story like this one would be planted all over every station and capture the world's attention. We have become a cold society, it hurts me to my very core...I almost don't like watching the news anymore. Most people NEVER think anything like this could ever happen to them...but when it does, a whole new conception of thinking comes to mind. I think most would agree that it doesn't seem REAL unless its close to home, or "what could I do about it anyway" attitudes...or we become almost numb, because we hear of this happening so much, not only on the news, but on television shows that follow real life victims...first thing I wondered when I read your blog was, did they find the person who did this? I think everyone knows there are seriously things wrong with the minds of people who would even think of harming anyone, never mind carrying it out...But look at what is on tv and movies and magazines...The US has the highest rape crimes in the world, because we don't believe in any "censorship." England censors violence but not nudity, and their police force do not even carry a gun, just a baton! No need...Europeans aren't raised with thoughts that the "nude body" is a no-no...its life and its natural...We on the otherhand brainwash our society that violence is funny and nudity is wrong...hmmm...what's wrong with this picture? Perhaps individuals with "weak" minds wouldn't get TOO many ideas, if violent ideas weren't just handed to them from the media...The media (meaning tv, films, magazines, newspapers,etc) make money from trash! Why? People are curious...by nature. Especially some weaker minded individuals...not a good scenario...what are your thoughts? Its a touchy subject when you mention "censorship." Media and government cries its against our constitution...another hmmm...I sometimes wonder if our forefathers could only see half of how "some" individuals twist the constitution around to hide behind some pretty crazy things and declare "freedom of speech" (no censorship) just to make a buck, do you think perhaps they would have EVER thought it may go tis far? I believe they are rolling around in their well respected grave sites...food for thought, I guess...My extreme sorrow to the family...we should all pray for them or send positive energy or whatever you believe, to victims like this...and do the same for the world. Not a saint, but I sure do pray and make my stands whenever possible...One of the reasons I left tv land!! I use to do the morning news graphics for TV in NYC...not mentioning what channel...no more media work, not for me!!! Just against my religion and morality for humanity.

    Oh, Heavenly Father, I lift up the family and friends of Alicia right now. I cannot imagine the grief they are going through, but You know. Wrap Your loving arms around them, comfort them, Lord. Let them feel Your Holy Presence, and know that You are with them, even through this tragedy. In Jesus' Name, Amen.

    I will put this through the prayer chains of the 3 churches I am partenered with. There will be prayers going up from Nevada and Arizona. Thank you for posting this...
