NWR: I'm back

Hello, WPB friends.  I've been away for a couple of weeks, and at the risk of bringing people down, want to vent a bit.

I was away because my youngest DD and her roommate were victims of a violent crime when an intruder forced his way into their apartment very early in the morning. 

DD's roommate, who is also her best friend, was beaten and raped while my DD was frantically calling 911 from her bedroom next door, having to listen to what was happening to her dearest friend and then being terrified as he tried to get into her room.

Blessedly, the police arrived in time to catch this horrible person inside their apartment.   Our families are now deeply involved in the criminal justice system as the offender is navigating his way through the system. 

Fortunately, the US Attorney who is prosecuting the case, and the SAT (think SVU) detectives who are on the case are simply wonderful and have treated both girls with incredible dignity, empathy, and respect.

Anyway, as you can well imagine, it's been the worst couple weeks of my life.  And that's going some, because I never did tell you all that my other DD, (the one who was married last July) suffered a life-threatening ruptured ectopic pregnancy in January.

So there you go, WPB friends.  I have had limited time on a computer as we've been back and forth to the city where she lives.  And....well, we've been pretty busy.

    Wow.  I'm so sorry to hear that.  My thoughts are with your daughter and her roommate now.  

    But it's good to hear that the police working with them are so great.  That's definitely a blessing.

    Oh my. I can't believe that! I watch that kind of stuff on TV, but you never imagine it happening to anyone you know (or know of). I'm so sorry Trix, that is absolutely terrible. I wish your daughter and her friend all the best in getting through this and being able to move on with their lives after this happening. It is so fortunate that they were both at home, I can only imagine what would have happened if only one of them were at home. I really have no words to describe how horrible this is. Your daughter and her friend will be in my thoughts.

    Wow, what an awful thing to happen. I noticed you were not around much, but never in my wildest thoughts did I imagine it was something this awful.

    You and your family are definitely in my thoughts and prayers.

    Oh my god, that's horrible, but I'm glad the police nabbed him. Hopefully, he'll get the punishment her deserves. I am glad that your DD and her roomie are otherwise safe.
