Well, I’m packing for ym Disneyland trip, and of course, my in-laws have to one-up everything.
One of my sisters in law was at this kind of a death prayer thing for I think the sister of a friend or something. I’m not sure what the tie in was. Anyhow, at the event(which was after 11PM, btw), some idiot decides to stick a gun over the fence and spray bullets into the people there. She got the worsed of it, getting hit in the liver, lungs and diaphragm. Fortunately, this was like practically in the backyard of a major trauma center, but it is ALSO near an elementary school. The close distance is probably what saved her life, but the bullet did enter AND exit, so she got nailed hard. Another indivdual got hit in the legs twice, and a third indvidual just got grazed in the arm.
As you can tell, she’s going to survive. I was back home by 00:30. That was FAST. Anyhow, I still have a vacation to go to, as my wife is insisting, although I’m suggesting we prioritize some other issues(like what just happened).
Police delivered the good news to us in the ER waiting room. The motive appears to be gang related. This doesn’t make sense, only because the sister in law isn’t in a gang, but I can’t say what the status is of some of the people she associates with as I don’t have a clue. Asian gangs…
Anyhow, wish her the best. My trip is ruined. I don’t really want to go.
For the trip, loaded up the kids with yoyos so I wouldn’t have to deal with dead batteries. Better than having to deal with what I expected to be was a dead sister in law. Yoyos proved to be a wonderful distraction. I know this is NYYR stuff, but hey, I call it as I see it.
Happy endings, so to speak. I’m emotionally drained.
LEARN: Learn who your friends are. AVOID bad people and avoid problem situations. There’s too much stupidity and violence running rampant.
