Victims of the DC-Area Sniper
Last night, I read this article about the sniper victims. Seeing their faces and reading a little about their lives added to the sadness and anger I already feel about this situation. The latest victim of the sniper, Linda Franklin, had local ties -- her friend and former sister-in-law lives here in Pensacola. Here is the story about this on the website of a local TV station. From the article:
Turner says Franklin was the glue that held her family together. She planned family camping trips for all the nieces and nephews and kept them smiling with games and pranks.
Donna Turner/Sniper Victim Friend; "It makes me angry. We need to find out where these snipers are if it's one, two, or ten. It doesn't matter it's not fair because he's taken innocent people."
Franklin had beaten breast cancer and had been undergoing therapy after having a double mastectomy.
Her friend can't believe she survived cancer and then died in such a tragic way.
This is just sad beyond words. Family and friends robbed of a wonderful person in their lives, because some sicko wants to play God. Mrs. Franklin had survived breast cancer, only to be senselessly murdered by a monster.
Then there's this:
Will Turner and her family travel to Virginia for the funeral?
She hasn't decided yet.
She's afraid to travel to the area while the sniper is still on the loose.
I pray that they catch this evil person (or persons) soon, before he robs someone else of their life. Before he robs someone else of a beloved family member or friend.Posted by Susan B. at 7:51 PM to Morality & Social Issues
