That's so unfair.

Stay strong & don't let their mistake taint your own life.

Regarding the shooting near my work the other day, I also found out that some stray bullets flew into the store where one of my co-workers/friends was buying lunch at the time. If he'd been standing at the front of the store at the time, he could well have been hit.

I am very sorry to hear for your loss, and my thoughts and prayers will be with you and your family. But don't their choice get to you. Stay strong, value your life, and take the time to help others who struggle with these thoughts too.

Amen. I pray you'll both move somewhere better soon. (And if you pick Canada, well, I'll be right here waiting... Or not, cause' scheduling is a pain for me.)

Ah, but what part of Canada? Your profile is not terribly specific. ;)

By the way, it turns out the person they were shooting at was hit four times, and made it to the hospital, where he was arrested. I believe he's the only one who's been arrested.

That's a relief! Sounds like he got what he deserved and then some.

As for where exactly my lovely little hole is? Well, let's just say that if you dug far enough you could find me hangin' with the fossils before they get to the Royal Tyrell Museum ;)

He’s from Alberta. Where I am also from, originally, though I now live in Vancouver. It’s basically Canadian Texas, because it’s where we keep all of our oil and conservatives. :lol:

Wait- the victim was arrested, not the (still unfound) shooter?

So far as I know, drive-by shootings are usually targeted. Usually because of some kind of gang beef. So the victim, while I’m glad he’s okay, was probably not exactly an upstanding citizen...

Exactly. This was gang-on-gang violence, but was committed in the midst of people not associated with either gang.

Yes to all of the above! Especially that last one. I guess ending up on a kaiju site is a given when you come from a province famous for it's dinosaurs, eh?

Funny you should mention Vancouver--my dad used to live there and he's always talking going back someday. :lol:

Ugh. Gangs. Just...

Unfortunately, my colleague who works in Philadelphia experienced the same thing last month (except the kid died right in front of him).

I just can't understand anything being sufficient provocation to commit such an act; much less the feud between two arbitrary cliques. (I know that to them, it's more than that- but that's the part I don't comprehend in any sense but the theoretical intellectual understanding that it is).

I mean, if we were to really dive into it, I’m sure there’s all sorts of socio-economic factors. Poverty, broken homes, lack of opportunity, etc. driving people into these violent groups where at the very least they can finally have some status, comradery and respect... but yeah, still horrendous and deserving of punishment.

I just realized that, in "If I Fell," grammatically it should be "That you would love me more than she," rather than "That you would love me more than her" (though that wouldn't work for the rhyme scheme, obviously).

Well, there goes that Beatles song. Can't ever listen to it again, or I'll die.

Unless someone can make a compelling case that he's singing to a bisexual woman, and he's actually competing with another woman for her heart, so it's not supposed to be "love me more than she loves/loved me," but rather, "love me more than you love/loved her."
