I have reverted today's post to draft and rescheduled it for tomorrow. My heart's not in it today. I think you all know why.
I did not know Vile Rat, Sean Smith in RL, but I know many, many young men and women like him. I was one once. I too have walked in dangerous places. I was fortunate enough to come home.
Rest in Peace Vile Rat. We will remember you Sean Smith. May his family find the solace they deserve in this time of grief.
