There are no words.

I've been consumed with the news of Josh Powell and the double-murder suicide. On Sunday, even though all news reports had the same information, I couldn't stop reading them.

It's just tragic that people can get so out of touch with reality that they think taking lives is the only answer. And to intentionally take children out of this world is just so unforgivable. So unbelievable. I can't begin to comprehend how devastated the family is now that they have lost not only Susan, but her children as well.

I think the situation hits a little too close to home for me, and that's why I can't stop thinking about it.

  1. This one upsets me too. Usually I can keep news somewhere in my brain where it doesn't become real. (I've transcribed some nasty court cases, and been totally unaffected.) But I have cried and cried for those boys. I can't get this out of my head.

    You're right. There are no words. You just hug your baby, thank God every day for her, and vow to love her forever and be the best parent you can.

  2. the whole thing feels so unreal, I can't imagine taking the life of two small boys especially my own children. He is a selfish, controling monster and I hate that he had the oppertuntiy to do this. I've been so sick about the whole thing to, he should have never been allowed to have his children after being the only one of interest in the disappearance of his wife.

  3. It is pretty sickening. That man really must have been messed up in the head to think this was his only way out. I can see how this hit you so hard. I'm sorry this story brought up bad memories.
