An unsolved murder

11 10 2010

We throw around the word ‘murder’. Its on television, in movies, books etc. People are more concerned with the f, b, n, etc words than with the word ‘murder’. I’m a writer and I’ve used murder as part of several books. But the actual horror of someone taking away someone else’s “one time” shot at being alive hardly touches us. Unless of course there is a murder in our family. Or to a close friend. Or even an a acquaintance. And then the utter futulity of the act, the waste of another human being, hits us like a wall.

I don’t usually reply to posts but I will in this case.
my God, i thought you were going to chip in with some decisive insght at the end there, not leave it
with ‘we leave it to you to decide’.

I think violence is repulsive and frightening to most people. Check out my new book on homicide.

Thank you. I’ve been blogging so much that i’ve gotten behind in some of the other projects that I was supposed to work on. Check out my books if you want. You can download well over half a book for free as a tease.
