Women with daughters dating
Christy Sheats (below) is the Texas mother who shot and killed both of her children (ages 22 and 17) before being gunned down by police. Rather than be forced into this life of depravity and sin, she chose to go down grasping her weapon in the name of God.
Besides the tragedy itself, the narrative surrounding her includes the fact that she opposed any sort of gun regulation, saying on Facebook as recently as March that “It would be horribly tragic if my ability to protect myself or my family were to be taken away.” Her husband thinks that Sheats killed their daughters because she “wanted him to suffer.” Mental illness may have also played an important role. As far as I am concerned, she is a martyr for Christ. I guess this is what a Christian honor killing looks like?
A little while ago, my father called me from the opposite side of the world to tell me he had a new girlfriend."I'm in love!
" he said, giddy on the other end of the phone, sounding like a teenage girl riding the waves of a new crush.
As a child, I clearly knew I missed my father terribly.
You’re killing me.” I would cling to his shirt anyway, sobbing and breathing in his special smell, overcome with the feeling that my heart—my world—was being torn in two.
I was always overjoyed to see him, but my happiness was marred by sadness because I knew we’d have to say goodbye too soon.
