The Wendy's shooting

Wednesday, March 5, 2008

I injured my thumb on my dominant hand on Tuesday so I'm avoiding typing as little as possible and probably will be silent here for the rest of the week.

However, on Monday we saw another senseless shooting here in Palm Beach County where a firefighter, a father of 5, lost his life. I can't count the number of times I've driven by the Wendy's where the shooting occurred.

I am really mad. If people don't want to live anymore, fine, but do it by yourself. The time to make a statement with your life is while you are alive by going to church, volunteering and otherwise helping others. That's a meaningful statement. Killing others is not; it just means you are a murderer.

My local country radio station WIRK did a donation drive to help the slain firefighter's family on Tuesday by standing on a corner with one of those boots near his station. Although the location was miles out of my way, I had to drive by and make a donation.

That was my statement against the senseless. Carol
