The Only Evil Worth Mentioning At this Time

Filed under: Angry, Friends, My Life, Self Pity — happychick @ 6.38p06

This may remind you uncannily of The Foresters post the other day. Before I moved here, I used to live in a lovely little community, a real family place. It was a rich area, one where graffiti and rowdy parties were at a minimum. The sort of place I would like to retire in. My best friends and I used to go to the local shopping centre after school, and hang there all weekend. Yesterday an 8 year old girl was raped and murdered in the shopping centre toilets that I had used for years. She was killed by a man who worked at the grocery store I had shopped at since I was 10. My best freinds were there, barely an hour before she was killed. It could have been my bestie. That thought is terrifying. It could have been her.

And for the little girl who was killed? What a loss. Anushka would’ve kicked his ass. But little Sophia, only 8, she was defensless. She was weak. What sort of a person does this? How much of a sick, twisted fuck would you have to be to assalt and then murder a little girl?

I sit here and I weep. I don’t know whether or not I can go back there. I don’t know whether or not I could handle it, or if I will begin to cry. I will pray for little Sophia tonight.



  1. That is so awful. And so frighteningly close to home. I wish I had words to share as nice as your comment on my post, but I’m just sitting here thinking that something’s really, really wrong with some people. And something’s wrong with a society that lets people grow up to do things like this.

    I cannot imagine this happening to my son. That poor family …

  2. what can i say?! everytime i get news about something like this, my rage just boils up to something i can’t even describe. thinking of that 8-yr. old girl, helpless and defenseless being abused and then killed! whatever’s happened to this world that our society today has brought up people like the man who killed that girl?! and they say we’re in the ‘modern age’?!
    BULLSHIT! does being modern and civilized include turning into an ‘unfeeling’ animal?! then, i’d rather stay primitive if that’s the case!

    sorry chick, can’t help venting out my rage here. an image of a small 8-yr. old girl flashed in my mind as i was reading this post and i jst can’t help cryin’ w/ rage! 😦

    take care girl, there’s packs of predators out there waitin’ to clutch on their preys!

  3. There was a little girl that was kidnapped raped and murdered in my city a few years ago. Used to the police would not even start looking for X number of hours. After this incident they implemented the ‘Amber alert’. An alert that goes out on every road sign, tv and radio station when a child is missing or kidnapped. It was too late for little Amber.

    My prayers are with Sophia, her family and with you my child.
