Can't get this off my mind
After seeing this story last week on the news about the double homicide in Marshfield, it really got me thinking, how can a mother expose her children to this type of person. As a mother, my concerns are: is Jordan eating enough healthy foods, is he getting enough sleep, am I spending enough time with him, let alone am I exposing him to such violent behaviour. I feel so bad for what these kids had to see. I had to do some preproduction for this particular story and I had to pull a line from the affidavit that read:
HER 6 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER AUTUMN ROGERS WAS IN THE ROOM AT THE TIME AND WAS SHOT IN THE FOOT. ACCORDING TO A SWORN AFFIDAVIT--
"AUTUMN SAID SHE SAW RICHARD SHOOT HER MOMMY AND THEN HE SHOT HER IN THE FOOT...AUTUMN SAID RICHARD SHOT HER MOMMY NOW THEY HAVE TO BURY HER."
And as I just re-typed that the chills once again...down my spine. These children are scarred for life, I'm afraid. And although I don't know the whole story and what the background is and I know I shouldn't judge, oh but it just upsets me by what some mother's have to go through and what their children have to go though.
