Tonight my life stood still.
At exactly 10:58pm I received a message on my phone from my dearest Dad…
” Honey, you need to call me back. Your brother’s situation has gotten worst and it’s not good. Not good at all.”
I called back.
See, my brother has been living in hell for 13 or some years now with a wife and his children. My brother just recently had to quit from being a coal miner in Alabama because he was told to. He was told to either quit or be fired; my brother has never been fired from anything in his life. He was told to quit because he is an addict, he’s addicted to Oxycontin. He’s a great man. Next to my Dad, he’s my hero. I would give my soul to be like him.
My brother has been shot by his wife’s father. See in the South it’s okay to shoot an unarmed man. A man who just wants to not live in hell.
He is now in critical condition and is in surgery.
I will not sleep tonight and I pray for justice in the South. I will SEE to justice for this crime.
You DO NOT shoot an unarmed man.
