words can hurt

Bloggers and mainstream media are gnashing their teeth in frustration over the recent horrible murder of two young people. While everyone screams for the justice that won’t be found, nearly every day, the mother of one of the victims parks her car in front of the house where her daughter was abused and killed. She sits and stares and looks for something intangible. I know that Knoxville wants national attention for the prevention of anything like this ever happening again. For the sake of that mother, I hope for quick resolution. There will never be an explanation for why. Nothing will make this better. I just wonder if we are making things worse for those left behind.
