First of all I would like to apologize to my friend Teresa and her family for your loss and the ignorant ,self rightous individuals who seem to have forgotten that a MOTHER has lost her child and from the looks of is not being given the opportunity to grieve either because words hurt!!!...Now onto you people ,you know the ones that are ranting and raving about Section8,welfare,and all of the above ,let me tell you something ..I grew up in Youngstown and Campbell and as a child it was a quiet little town but when drugs came along just like any other city things changed...my mom and I moved to the south and by the way , I live in the suburbs of Birmingham,AL in a city called Hoover ,AL. Now you all are judging a city that YOU live in ,You people are sitting here talking about how bad crime is in YOUR city and all the things that are the so-called reasons why YOUR streets are not safe but yet YOU ALL are doing nothing about it but sitting back blogging at the expense of a grieving family.So let me break it down to you earlier I mentioned that I live in a suburbian area called Hoover (google it) and the reason why I am explaining this is because I live here and I pay my taxes just like the next person no there aren't any section 8 houses that I know of but WE STILL HAVE CRIME!!! My son's school is one of the top HS in the country (2 adays on MTV) but they still have problems ,even had a stabbing where an innocent young man was murdered on campus several years ago. People wake up crime is everywhere and rather you realize the only difference between any other area is Campbell is smaller so the crimes go more noticed.I am not sure if you all watch First 48 but it has been taped lately in Birmingham, crime is everywhere and the criminals are getting younger and younger so the next time you want to sit on your butts and blog about what is wrong with YOUR city,get up off your butts and get on yoour police department about better patrols ,more officers, and for the MEN (and I do mean real men ) that seem to have so much to say when is the last time you looked into mentoring a young troubled child , your words and actions today may be a building block for that lost child tomorrow.Instead of sitting back and doing nothing ,it only takes a few positive words to build a child up ,it takes that negative frown to break one down!! I don't normally blog but it really made me angry to see how people are going on and on while a mother has lost her child!I will be home for Labor Day weekend and I will see you and your family then..Love you!!
