What It Takes

I got a call from my younger sister yesterday. She said she would be in town over the weekend and asked if I wanted to get together. Of course I do! I figured she would be in town for some conference or talk related to her job, but no.

It turns out that her best friend's brother Jordan was shot and killed the other day. My sister is coming out to support her best friend and be with the family.

What hurts me the most is the number of people who heard the argument but didn't see the people involved. As of right now, nobody knows anything. It's going to be difficult for the family to get past this until they can put a face to his killers.
