Mourning

There was an Amber Alert in Salt Lake City yesterday for a seven year old Burmese girl. They found her last night. Dead. In an apartment in the complex where she lived. She and other neighborhood kids played and watched TV in the apartment she was found in. The man who's been arrested is also a refugee from Burma.

Why do people do these things? How can they live with themselves afterwards?

I didn't know the little girl or anyone involved, but there's a big burning hole in the middle of me thinking about her and the family who loved her.

It's not right, it's not fair.

Why do these things happen to the innocent?

they do these things because there is a hole inside them that can only be filled by evil.
