March 11, 2011 will forever be one of the most haunting days of our lives. A simple argument between two adults at a child’s birthday gathering stripped my child’s father from her before she even turned one. The argument between two others resulted in physical altercations and eventually led to his death, so suddenly. He was telling the two adults to cut it out and was simply minding his business. I cannot believe that so many young men and women are dying from gun violence in the small town of South Bend. Yes, violence is everywhere, it just hits different when you’re not used to it in your community. I really pray for my city and those who are victims as well as perpetrators. God bless us all!
