I am laid over in JFK for nine hours, so surfing the net is my saving grace at the moment. Loving the blog posts recently, but here's something a little heavier. I'm sure you've heard about this murder of a 9-year-old girl by a 15-year-old girl...what interests me is her motive. Apparently, she wanted to know what it felt like to kill someone. There are a lot of teen girls this age who get into "emo" and self-expression/individuality through such styles and alternative trends.
But for some reason this case goes beyond a simple emo teenaged girl who cuts herself. How unbelievable the departure is from a few shallow cries for attention on a wrist to a 9-year-old with a slashed throat. Hard to get my mind around it.
