Just this past saturday I heard about a mugging just across the river from where I live. The victim died a slow and painful death after being in a coma for several days after the incident. I didnt know him very well, but he was like a second father to a friend of mine, and she's beyond heartbroken. It really kills me to see her like this. She already has some severe emotional issues as it is, being brought up in a broken home, self-harming, etc., etc., and she loses one of her closest friends who has been close to her and her family since she was born. I know what it's like to lose a friend, but it breaks my heart to see her endure this sort of pain. It's not like she hasnt got it rough enough as it is, and now this hits her. There really isnt much i can do about it, which makes it even harder for me.
