Young, old, rich and poor.
Black, white, Asian, Hindu and Hispanic.
The family of the victim wore white head bands to show they were mourning a loved one. Everyone sang and mourned.
The Catholic, Pentacostal, Baptist and the non denominational.
All to pay respect to a man most had never met.
Father Quinn led prayers and Mario Civera and Joe Sestak gave remarks. The wind battled flames from the candles held high, but we all stayed.
I lost it during Amazing Grace. To sing the words are one thing. But to see the words and REALLY get the meaning are another. I hate that my neighborhood has been infested by a parasite preying on innocent people. As I explained to the kids, This is a country where less than fifty years ago, we would have to drink from a separate fountain. One hundred years ago, we were considered 3/5 of a person. Now, we have one of our own as the Leader of the Free World, but rather than consider the positive vibe from Obama’s win, someone took another person’s life for about two hundred dollars.
Take a moment to pray for the Pham family. This type of evil should happen to no one.
