What a tragedy. What would drive a Mother so crazy to shoot her own Family?
I saw the headlines on Twitter yesterday saying that there was a shooting in West Seattle that left four people dead. My heart dropped reading the headline alone because its so close to home... I used to work in West Seattle for awhile. Although I don't live in Washington anymore, I still constantly read the news relating to it because it will always be home to me. This morning, I woke up and figured that there would be more information about the tragedy so of course, I followed up. I went to my reliable source,
King 5 News and it broke my heart to see faces that looked very familiar on the front page. Although I don't know the family personally, they just looked really familiar.
This story caught my attention because its
- so close to home
- Cambodian people involved (I care about all people, but I will admit that I pay closer attention to my own people... its the truth)
- family tragedy... always breaks my heart
- survivor's name is 'Thyda' as well... though the reporter pronounced her name as "thigh-duh"... ugh! *cringe*

My heart, thoughts, and prayers go out to this Family.
