Remember Terry



Last week a man was beaten to death behind the courthouse market. His name was Terry (see "NCJ Daily"). Beyond whatever vices Terry pursued, he was a person, he was my friend, and I felt blessed when I could trade a couple of dollars — paper — for five or 10 minutes of his time. Terry was harmless, and he really did not deserve such an end.

Beyond events, I want to know where Terry's funeral is being held, and keep your awareness. I will feel guilty, personally, I didn't do more for that man while I could, until my expiration date. This is not everybody's fault, and I don't want to berate anyone. If I could ask anything, I would ask you to remember Terry with me, maybe donate to a proper funeral and burial for him.
