You Just Never Know

Hi friends, hope you all had a good Saturday.It's hot here and muggy.I heard last week about a hate crime that happened at a high school in Pacifica where I used to live.A couple of people had broken into Oceana high school , set the girl's locker room on fire, and had written swastikas and racial slurs all over the walls of the high school.This was big news as it happened almost a week to the Virginia Tech Shootings.Anyhow I was watching the news last night and the police had made two arrests and when I looked up to see who it was my jaw dropped.One of the people arrested was a 20 year old kid named Danny Walsh who my little brother used to be friends with.I have fond memories of them both playing together and taking them both to the beach to play.I have tons of photos of the two of them playing, yeah it was shocking.Danny was a quiet kid who seemed like he was never any trouble.I guess you never can tell sometimes.You can never guess how some people will turn out, I was raised to respect others and to not be judgemental .My mom is very open -minded and she taught me the same.My brother will no doubt be shocked when I tell him his former childhood friend is in jail, I Love You All and Hugs Lisa XO

I often wonder about people who do stupid things like that. Remember it is the quiet ones that you have to worry about! LOL

How sad. some kids think it's funny to do things like this, or he really does have some problems he needs to deal with.

I am so sorry to hear about this Lisa. I am sure this was such a shock to you. Hopefully he will realize how wrong this was and learn from the experience.
