Wild Life Of A Little Monster

Others are scared of me because of all the fun I have. Considered a vigilante by my Eponine.

With A Heavy Heart

It feels like there's a big bulls-eye over Kansas City.

About two years ago, a Good Samaritan named Jonathan tried to stop a purse snatcher. Jonathan was injured as he held on to the purse and was dragged by the thief's car as he tried to escape. Several days later Jonathan died. The incident occurred in a Target parking lot in Overland Park, Kansas.

A few months ago, a guy drove up to a shopping area and a Target in South Kansas City. He opened fire, killing two people. It was a shocking incident. MegMacB and I often visited this Target. As a matter of fact, I was there Sunday.

Very recently on a Saturday, an 18-year-old girl walked out of a Target, Kelsey Smith. Again in Overland Park. Security cameras show her walking out of the store. Just minutes later, she was abducted in the parking lot. She never made it home. Through cell phone technology, a few days later her body was found.

Violence to others is something I can't comprehend. As the news about the incidents above unfolded, my heart would fill with sadness. None of it makes sense. Then, tonight while watching the evening news, there's updates on the pregnant lady in Ohio. Jessie Davis. That story is horribly sad.

The news also included an update about Vonzall Temple Jr. The 17-year-old was shot and killed just one week after his graduation from high schoo. Police are still seeking leads that will break the case.
