Murder Of A Child

This is a story that will make you hug your child everyday. My friend was murdered eighteen years ago. She was only sixteen years old, and never had a thought that her life would be cut so short. To this day it is yet to be solved. Her parents are still looking for answers. The papers say that she fell off of a nine-inch porch and broke her neck,but all the clues lead to something malicious and cruel. Her body was thrown into the back of a truck and taken through a car wash like her life meant nothing.
There are people out there living their lives without remorse. They know that they did this and do not care. She was a beautiful person and we all miss her. I hold my children close to me everyday.This horrible event has never left my mind. I am thirty-four now and I still dream about her.
People have lost their hearts somewhere and never turned around to pick them up. So, they go along heartless and soulless. This world needs a change and it is going to take a lot of work to do it. It depends on everyone to decide how they are going to change it.
Janie would want this to be solved. I feel like she will never be at rest until someone comes forward with information. My dreams about her are not based on how she was years ago. I dream about her every time something important happens in my life. She was there when I had my children. She was there when I had struggle in my life, and was not sure what to do. She was there there when I went back to school and was unsure of myself.
Everyday I think of the life she could have had.I still talk to her parents and I still feel their pain. My thoughts on this hopefully are not one sided. I miss hearing her voice.I miss hearing her laugh.I miss her telling me when I have done something stupid.Violence in this country needs to come to a stop.Everyone is a child of someone.Hug your child. Hold your child. Spend time with your child.Everyone has their own time to go, but sometimes there are thieves of lives out there.It is a horrible thing to think about,but unfortunately it is the world we are living in now.
