For those of you who may not have been paying attention to the news today, three Hunter High football players were shot today, killing two of them. My son is an assistant out there (part time, low paying gig that he loves). The kid that’s still alive is Matt Asiata’s son.
All of the kids involved, the three victims and the four suspects, are between 14 and 15 years old. WTF?!?
Really!?! What happened to the sanctity of life, and just having a fist fight over a disgreement?
This is sad, on so many levels, a tragedy as well. I hope that Matt’s son survives. I hope that justice is served, but that doesn’t change my question about the sanctifty and value of life. Less violence is better, but what happened to just having a fist fight when words woudn’t resolve the issue?
I know Matt and Tangi really well. They had Ephraim when Matt was at Snow, he actually has a Daughter thats older, I remember meeting her during Drivers Ed (Tangi was in the same class) . So sad for their family and hopefully he can fully recover.
