Another Goodbye …

I’m not exactly sure what’s happening to us.  Hard economic times always yields more violence, but how is killing another person going to make your life better?

I have to say another good-bye today.  One of my first level management staff just had her husband gunned down in the Bronx an hour ago while he was walking his mother’s dog.  

As can be imagined, it’s somber at my job right now as we support of co-worker through this loss.

If any of you pray — any prayer of support for this staff member and the surviving family will be greatly appreciated.

    Hi Nicky,

    I’m so sorry to hear of both your losses. My thoughts and prayers are with you, also the families and friends of those involved. I don’t think anyone can answer the “why?” question. Sometimes life just doesn’t make sense 😦 . I pray that you will find peace and comfort, and the blessing of a community pulling together to bring light into the darkness.

      Thank you so much Carolyn. You and all who have commented continue to validate that the online community is very kind and caring. Just like our off-line communities. 🙂

    Oh no. Horrible. So sorry. 😦

    Still dealing with jet-lag, otherwise I’d comment more about what you said about the economy (in agreement).
