What A Little Angel

UPDATE: My entry was a little inaccurate - it was indeed the teenager wounded in one of the sniper attacks who claimed he felt closer to god. My apologies for the inaccuracy - this was posted very quickly. But my original observations stand, for the most part.

I've forever altered this post but many were forever altered by the events that took place in the DC area a year ago. I was one of the people trying to stay away from these guys. Yep, I was one of the people in the DC area trying to find out of the way gas stations to avoid getting shot. Yep, I was one of the people stuck at work because our building was locked down when it was thought these guys were in the area. It was two weeks of hell, wondering if you were going to get shot for doing something simple like stopping at an ATM for cash.

To us, the little punks hiding out the the trunk of their car, picking people off at random, these guys kind of felt like some arbitrary force, but they weren't gods. They were just little pricks with some fucked up ideas about the world.
