This past week we have all been reeling from the shock of the murder of Charlie and Braden Powell, who were murdered by their father. The same father whose wife, Susan Powell, has been missing (presumed murdered by her spouse) for the past two years. Given the years of tread I’ve worn off my life’s passage, rarely does one encounter an act of cowardice and evil as was witness in Puyallup, WA last week; these boy’s died a horrific death at the hands of their father. While I and many others believe they have joined their mother; one can only hope their father who selfishly decided when their young lives would end, as he did their mother, burns for eternity.
