Bombs explode at the Boston Marathon.
A fertilizer factory explodes, killing many and devastating an entire town in Texas.
Three women emerge from a home where they’ve been held captive and abused for ten years.
A 32 year old husband and father, Tim Bosma is kidnapped, killed and his body burned, all seemingly over a Dodge RAM 3500 truck.
This one is hitting close to home, and not just because the case is occurring geographically closer than the others…it’s because Tim is the same age as my brother. A friend of mine from university knew Tim. He was the father of a young child, and leaves behind this daughter and wife. All he wanted to do was sell his truck, after listing it on Kijiji, an online service we’re likely to use to sell a vehicle.
I’m just sick over this morning’s news. I can’t image how Sharlene Bosma is feeling today, and I can’t even allow myself to try to imagine the horror of knowing your husband will never come home again.
I’m beginning to feel like I shouldn’t watch the news anymore.
