today : for being different

I must say that i am, like many, inured to the violence and horror around us in the world. yet once in a while a story beggars my belief, this vicious murder stood out for me for two reasons. Firstly the young woman involved was trying to stop people from attacking her boyfriend and secondly, the attack was a base form of bullying. She was kicked and stamped to death for looking a bit different. Whether they were Goths or hippies or Emo's or tall or short or whatever matters not.

Her boyfriend was interviewed and said : "I just wish she had run away and left me to die".
