What is going on?

What is this? What's going on?

I can't believe that this senseless killing has happened here. naive I know, we're not that unique here. Fugitive Bolgger has put it all extremely well. It happened there too. WTF?

All FB's readers have a point. But how much do you weigh up in that "flight or fight" nano-second? I would appreciate someone helping me too. I have 2 daughters and a husband, a mother and brothers.

Have we really some that far from dancing round the campfire? Sometimes I think not. Sometimes I KNOW not.

Value your friends and family. Make sure they know you love them. You never know what's round the corner.

Unfortunately, we are not all that far from "dancing around the campfire."

You feel it so much more when it happens close to home, don't you? The one in my city really shook me up and not just me, everyone is talking about it. What a horrible waste.

Mike - isn't it a shame? However, history has taught us we have learnt nothing from history!

RB - Big bunny hugs to you; our "event" happened in Auckland which is far north of here but our country is so small it may as well have happened here. I am trying to get it thru to my girls that this is exactly the kind of relationship (our murder in Auckland was due to the intervention between a man and his partner) they need to steer well clear of!

I've thought about this quite a lot since RB's post plus events in my own life have given me a rather more sober outlook at the moment... having kids and a wife definitely makes me more selfish and more attuned to self preservation... but like you I would want someone to come to my aid if I was in trouble... therefore I would hope I would go to someone else's. Sigh. The people at fault though are the assailants... here we all are wrestling with our consciences while they patently didn't bother to consult their own at all!

Steve - indeed and thus the contest between good and evil continues!

Value family and friends indeed. As for the camp fire, perhaps there was more sense of community around that than there is in the vacant-eyed, loveless, lost generation that hang out between the brickwork and the bitumen of our city streets.

Brother T - I know. Maybe we need to organise a cyber-hug day or something...
