    What happen to going out in the yard and smacking each other around a bit over disagreements then getting up and getting over it and on with life???? Life is PRECIOUS people!!! We are all someone’s daughter/son, mother/father, brother/sister, aunt/uncle, cousin/best friend and most importantly…we are ALL GOD’S CHILDREN!! Be a REAL man/woman and stand by your word when you give it. Don’t take advantage of your friends/family. RESPECT one another!! Such disregard for LIFE just breaks my heart. Totally and utterly senseless people! And just plain DUMB! Only cowards shoot folks cause they can’t communicate and act like mature grown ups. Self defense situations exempt.
