Malgus, your comment describing our lives as a gift from God is exactly what I believe. Given that, we have a responsibility to protect that gift, not only ours but those we love and sometimes, even of those we may not know or may not like.
Gypsy, I am so sorry for your loss. I cannot imagine how you feel. May you find peace in knowing you were not to blame, and knowing that you son is at peace.
For God, Family, Country, & Liberty!
