Thoughts about life

I hear so many people are hurting so much after reading the story about the young man (Karim Meskine) who lost his life after being beaten to death, allegedly by a 16-year-old.

I know myself, I have cried. My heart hurts so much for his family. Why does this happen so much?

My friends, family, neighbours, co-workers, business merchants – we all talk about our time when we were 16 and all we could talk about is getting our driver’s licence.

We were all so excited and couldn’t wait to drive.

Nowadays I guess for the youngsters it is beating on people.

We don’t understand this generation. Why? How do you get pleasure doing this?

We all wish we had a magic wand to bring their son back – anything to bring him back would be a blessing.

Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.

I am so sorry you have to deal with this when it is supposed to be the most magical and joyous time of the year.
