The word murder makes you stop and take a deep breath because once that word has been uttered what follows is going to be unpleasant. In 2005 here in Austin a girl was murdered and listening to parts of the trial on Fridays news was definitely unpleasant. The girl was only 21.
The accused is in his twenties and his life is over. This thought has bothered me all day. It only takes seconds to destroy your life and the lives of others. Please take it from someone that knows, it's not a lesson you want to learn the hard way.
