    Damn. You don't have to have children of your own to be impacted by a story like this. Having children of your own focuses the impact like a punch to the gut.

    Well, the rumor is that he was on a cocaine and alcohol binge when he did it.

    Face piles of trials with smiles. It riles them to believe that you perceive the web they weave.

    I can't and don't want to imagine what it is like for her parents. Talk about a parent's worse nightmare. To think only couple weeks from graduating.
