6 Degrees

I call it the 6 degrees of Northern Palm Beach County. If you work hard enough, you'll find common ground with anyone you meet in the northern county.

And it took me less than a minute to find the commonality with the little girl who was murdered on Thanksgiving. I know not her family personally, but many of my friend's children danced with her at the studio she took ballet. My friend's children were to be in the Nutcracker with her today.

I am sickened for this family, for their friends, and for the children to whom explanations must be made... when we as adults do not have them.

I am speechless and the word sad doesn't begin to encompass the depths of grief I feel for them.

I have phone calls to make this afternoon...

I am so very sorry. Just when you think things are pretty good, something horrible like this happens.

Who kills the babies? Who? There needs to be no trial. He needs to just stop existing...

That is just so so sad. I pray for the families involved, and for their friends. A crime like this has such far reaching ripples.

Big hugs to you and your family too.

I've left messages with the folks I know that knew here. It's just so daggum sad. Tragic. Horrific. I'm aghast...and they've not caught him yet.
