“One Man’s Opinion”
Part I
I was shocked when I heard the news about the murder on Monday.
I had received the police email notification, but I just skimmed it with
the intention of reading it in detail later, so I wasn’t aware of the per-
sons involved until someone told me. It’s distressing, because I am
well acquainted with both of the young men and to my knowledge
they were good friends. They worked at the same place and both
were customers of and have appeared in the HOT SPOT.

Now one is dead, and the other is charged with murder. Two young men in their twenties and for
all intents and purposes, both their lives are now lost. A split second decision over a matter that
couldn’t have been that important, was life changing.

I don’t even know where to begin with rants about the futility of violence to solve disputes and the
depletion of our younger generation of men, through murder, incarceration and under education. I’m
not even going to try this time. I just want the families to know, that the times I spent with both of
these young men were always filled with good times and laughter. I know that the deceased young
man will be missed as a life gone too soon and the incarcerated young man will forever be wonder-
ing what happened and why?

Along these same lines another young man was killed last month. I’d only met him a couple of times
when he was a teenager, but I worked very closely, with one of his parents on a daily basis, so I had
a good feel for the type of family he was from. I hard working, Christian, upstanding household who
stressed education to the children and yet the outcome was the same. The young man was killed in
the street.

To date, a few years back a young man that I knew was killed outside, while I was in the club. A cou-
ple of months later, as I was getting out of my car a young man was shot and killed in broad daylight
on the corner, Then last year another young man, I’d met was killed at the club where he worked.
Now this year a young man who I knew was killed after a run-in with the authorities and now these
most recent incidents. I know the nature of my business puts me in contact with a lot more young
people than most people my age, but my dealings with these young people have far and away been
positive. So it hurts me deeply, when, one, ….by one, … one, ….by one, ...they’re gone.

If Someone, Anyone has the answer as to how we can STOP this Madness, please tell me, or better
yet tell someone who can do something about it. If you know, just tell me what to do and I’ll do it.

Until then, I can only ask, Why Does This Keep on Happening?

Just, One Man’s Opinion.

Tired of the inconvenience of driving

from the airport to his country cottage,
a man equipped his small plane with
pontoons so he could land on the lake

his next trip however, he made his
approach down the airport runway as

Alarmed, his wife cried out, "Are you

crazy? You can't land this plane here

yanked the nose up, narrowly averting
certain disaster.

Continuing home, he landed the plane

on the lake without mishap. As he sat
there, visibly shaken, he said to his
wife, "I don't know what on earth got
into me. That's the stupidest thing I've
ever done in my life!"

And with that, he opened the door and
