I feel so profoundly sad for Chris Henry and such an early demise. Just had to mention it.

It's sad. Especially after turning it around. It's almost as God had a plan for him and his mission on Earth was accomplished.

After Sean Taylor (I'm a Redskins fan), it's another sad loss in the NFL.

But there are many sad losses. For example, a 12-year old was killed in Lyon by local gangs who were shooting using a submachine gun!!!

It is sad.

FRENCH kids, FrogBurger?
Yes, that's exactly the feeling I got from this story, by the way....Henry had seemingly become a firmer believer and his mission was accomplished. Who knows, maybe he affected a lot of people with his stronger faith!?

FrogBurger said...

I'm sure they were French. Now they may be from immigrant families but they're still French.

Z said...

OH, sure, FrogBurger, and those five "Americans" who plotted to fight against us in Afghanistan and worse are American and it should be construed by anybody reading that article I blogged on about their situation that they're Americans of no militant background!?

I surely do understand that they ARE "French" citizens and those 5 Americans ARE American citizens, but it always strikes me that we need to know if they are coming from places which do us harm...that's why I bring this up.

FrogBurger said...

I know but I don't have the info. All I know is that they had a submachine gun in a country where weapons are banned and policemen are barely allowed to shoot to kill ;-)

Yes sir, guy gets into a domestic disturbance and runs out and jumps into the bed of a moving pickup.

Whatever happened to personal responsibility. This Darwin award stuff happens and the right gets all misty.

Z, this is off the subject. There's a comment for you on my blog under the posting "Their not extremists..."
It's from an old friend of mine, very trustworthy individual. I don't have your email address or I would have done a cut and paste and sent it that way.

Z said...

Ducky, your sensitivity is overwhelming.

FrogBurger, exactly the point. No names, no pictures, huh?

The Hermit said...

Oops! I meant "they're" not "their"

FrogBurger said...

I read Ducky. Argh.

Darwin Awards will go to Obama this year and the pathetic leftists of your kind.

I didn't know this guy's story at all. I don't follow the Bengals, but reading of someone dying at 26is a sad thing.

Elmers Brother said...

It's not a left or right thing duhkkky it's a human thing. you're such an ass.

David Wyatt said...

The Bengals are my fave, & I am sorry to hear of this. Z, this is the 1st I've heard of his faith. I can only trust that he knew the Lord. That's certainly all that matters now. God Bless.

Z,
I am a Bengals fan. Having followed Henry's story we were heartened that this physically talented young man was turning the corner. I was appalled by his behavior but always hoped for his turnaround. His death was sad.

Z said...

Tonight on CNN, Rick Sanchez was absolutely smirking at the suggestion that Henry had changed his life around...it broke my heart. The typical liberal cynicism isn't wanted in America anymore

I hope he's at peace now, and that his fiancee gets some help.
