Goodbye Riley Ann
I have nothing snarky to say. I'm sitting here at my computer at 6:15 in the morning with tears streaming down my face.
I just read the police account of Riley Ann Sawyers death. This is a local story that has garnered some national attention.
On October 29th, a plastic storage container was found washed up on Galveston Island with the body of a two year old little girl. Her skull had been fractured, and she had other injuries as well. Local police were calling her "Baby Grace"
I won't go into the account of her death, it's all here.
The killers were her mother and step father. A full confession has been given.
I look at this picture and I can see my own daughter at that age in that face. Who could do this? Who?
I wasn't going to rant, but let me say this:
All you fuckers out there who claim to be "Pro-Family", yet don't want gays to marry or adopt ask yourselves this -
Would little Riley-Ann have been better off in a loving home with two fathers who cherished her? Or two loving mothers?
Damn, this is not a good way to start the day.
For you Riley Ann:
