Life is an infinite continuum, feeding on its own death. Our mortality, real and imagined, lives within. We can always see these truths with a discerning eye. The mirrored images that seem like two, are but one, a parallel universe whose paths cross like a wisp of wind, we are all of one time, like prose and poems written in separate centuries, but of the same struggle. There, always there, truth never hides, except for those who don’t seek it  for fear of what they might find. From light to dark we fly in different directions though toward the same destination. What matters is what we do on our flight. Do we see the paths of leaves as they float on the pond, the reflection of the sky beyond, and the trees, who have now shed their leaves but will reflect full in the spring; beneath the leaves, the roots of the lily pads  and the stare of a wary carp who looks from his world as we do from ours? We must find time on our journey to read, play a game, or simply sit and wonder at the marvels around us, for death will come in its own time…

    And the NRA argument will be guns don't kill people bombs do.

    I guess these blogs are to express honest opinions...so...I think it's great that they killed one and I hope they kill the other. Samuel L. Jackson said it best..."Yes, they deserve to die, and I hope they burn in hell!"

    Also a good point, Cyndi. Maybe to them, life in prison in the US would be the worst punishment...and I'm sure the other inmates would help see to it. But, how many more free-loading prisoners can we afford to feed with our tax money?...I hate to think I work everyday to feed and provide a warm bed for a murderer...but I see what you mean...what is the answer?

    If they are who they are being portrayed as being, then they do not want to be caught alive. Yes, Craig, answers are needed... this will not be a closure. And execution will not be a deterent. Eternal imprisonment by the government they detest? Maybe. Hugs sent to my American friends--- love, Cyndi

    Good point, Craig....

    I agree, but it would be good to get more information about motives and that's hard to get from a dead guy--then let 'em burn in hell! Hard to believe these guys were working on their own.

    I was following this on the news this morning. Apparently it's two brothers - the older one (20) was killed last night, but the younger one (19) is still on the loose. I still can't believe this actually happened. Scary stuff.

    Yep...I agree with you there, Ruben. I guess I'm too quick to want to drop the hammer....no suspects alive....no information gathered. (information that could possibly prevent something like this in the future)

    Main suspect dies: case closed ... Not again!
