A heartbroken Ronee' comes to grips with news involving several of her friends; she writes to their mother to get more details. She also tries to offer support.

Friday, March 16, 2007, 9:32 p.m., D.S.T., Nashville, Tennessee~

Dear Naomi, Micah, and Family~

This is Ronee'. When I heard the awful news last night about Rebekkah and Maddie getting shot on their way home from church, I went numb with disbelief. I have been in a state of shock ever since; it's all I can do to keep from crying--again.

I hope you, Micah, and the other kids are okay. I don't know why people have to be so stupid. What's wrong with people today? I know: they just don't care anymore.

I, maman, or daddy will tell Johnny what happened, but not yet. It's going to be so hard to hide something like this from him; but we will have to tell him. After all, Rebekkah IS his girlfriend; he has a right to know what is going on.

It seems so funny (okay, not funny, per se, but strange): yesterday, Johnny and the rest of the family were so happy; today our world has been turned upside down, and we are on the verge of tears. How things change so quickly! That is how life goes. It can be uprooted when one lesst expects it.

I told my friends at school about what's happened. I gave them your addy (I hope you don't mind); they will be sending you some cards for Rebekkah and Maddie. You need all the support you can get right now, as this is a very difficult time.

The kids could sense something was wrong when I came to school today. They could tell I'd been crying. (I don't hide my feelings very well, I'm afraid.)

Well, Naomi, I will let you go. I know you are probably at the hospital with your kids; if you don't write back right away, I'll understand.

If you need anything, ANYTHING at all, just let me know. In the meantime, I'll try to be there for you. I'll have Christ Assembly of God pray for you; it is going to take a huge miracle for y'all to get through this.

Know I love and miss you and that I DO care for y'all. May God be with you; lean on Him; He'll get you through!

~As always, your Tennessee friend, Ronee' Le-Anne. :( >tears!<

P.S.: Y'all know where to reach me.

~Ronee' Le-Anne.

To put such a tragedy in your work definitely enhances the reality of our world today. Not one day goes by that you do not hear of some form of violence, it's so sad for the younger generation. Great write!
