bad news at 2:30pm in the afternoon

so i just got some news.
i was in the middle of making a vision board when i got the call.
i’ve been trying to get my mind in the right direction.
i’m not a whole mess about it,
but i guess you can say i’m frozen.
you know when you hear bad news and you’re in disbelief.
this news was in regards to my aunt through marriage brother

he was killed in a robbery.
besides star fox (rip),
i don’t know much who were killed by the hands of another.
it’s always been death by cancer.
so the story is:

he was robbed at gunpoint.
when he gave the money,
his killers didn’t think it was enough so they shot him dead.
like…
wtf?

the worst part is he fell out with my family after her death.
it was so bad,
he wasn’t even speaking to his niece.
she is like 10.
the other worst part is he was killed the day before her death anniversary.

i’m just really stunned right now.
i’ve been through so much death that i can’t even cry anymore.
he was around a lot when i was younger,
but we lost contact throughout the years.
i hate he died with all this unresolved drama.
smh.
may he rip.

  1. OMFG….WTF….. SENSELESS….. I hope they catch those MF……OMG.. I am so sorry to hear of your loss buddy. The sad news of Death is NEVER easy. Sudden death is traumatic. So so sorry. …..SMDH…news like this that makes you fill with anger and you want to write off humanity.But humanity is good. Its some of us are not humans.

    I support the death penalty. If someone takes the life of another, then why should your life not be taken ? Some call it an eye for an eye. I call it the consequence of your stupid actions.

    WOW….

    Be Strong. This is when your faith comes ion and takes over.
    be strong.

    Blessings

    1. ^i just don’t understand it.
      like,
      i can’t process how money is not enough.
      he allegedly didn’t put up a fight so why kill him?
      the worst part,
      we were getting ready to mourn her death and now we have to mourn his as well.

      thank you for the well wishes.

  2. Sadly this is the world that is crafted. If people will kill you on dating apps, they will kill you for anything these days. I learned my lesson along time ago about people when a killer had it on his mind to take me out but the Universe took him out first.
    It might seem like a hard thing to do but remember all the positive things as much as you can.

  3. I’m saddened to read this, I send my condolences and Hope of Healing to you and your family. All this senseless violence, greed and toxicity in the world has to end. I Hope Calm, Warmth and Comfort greets you and yours. Peace to him, you and your family at this time.

  4. Do not beat yourself up or blame yourself. Let a positive come out of this: You will make an extra attempt to reach out to loved ones you’ve lost contact with.

    When my aunt went in for surgery, I didn’t go because I didn’t want to see her like that. She didn’t wake up from the surgery.

    The lesson being to put energy into people while they’re still here. Reach out. Check in with people. May your family be comforted. Perhaps reaching out to his niece would be helpful. A trip to visit family mat also help.

    When people pass, they feel helpless and don’t know what to do. Do things for them so they can grieve. Go grocery shopping for them. Bring over food so they don’t have to bother with cooking. Bring in mail for them. Listening. Being company on silence. Your presence can mean so much. Focusing on pleasant memories. Blessings to you and yours

  6. This is why it is always important to not be upset with your loved ones for a lengthy period of time, you never know when your time is going to be up. What a sad way for a life to end.
