Gang initiation apparently. This happened in front of a friend of my son's house, who heard the shot and dragged Nick inside. Nick had been in the first class my bride TA'd in and his mom was the room mother.

The weight of human suffering and tragedy is immense. Sure do hope the young fella pulls through OK.

Grievious.Two lives lost all on account of pullin' a trigger. I believe the assailant is still at large.

Yes, still at large. There were three other shootings in the area in the space of a few hours. Police suspect it was a gang initiation night. The description of the vehicles involved match up.

Daniel, my son's friend and the boy who pulled Nick into the house is really having a tough time of it.

I can only imagine.

Gang initiation night, huh? What a great evil. Evil doers waxing worse and worse. At some point soon one of those animals will squeal and they'll have the killer.

And at some point soon, I hope, God will see that the cup of human suffering is full and He'll finally drop the curtain on the sad history of planet earth.
