20 years ago...

This is in our local paper today.  The Weavers went to school in my little town.  Same school that I went to, actually.  Read comment #1 and #2...  They're everywhere, I guess.  (referring to comment #2)

KALISPELL, Mont. (AP) — When Sara Weaver saw her father Randy struck in the shoulder by a government sniper’s bullet in the Idaho wilderness in August 1992, she began to sprint back to the family’s cabin on a mountaintop called Ruby Ridge.
As the 16-year-old closed in, her mother, Vicki, opened the cabin door and stood behind it, holding Sara Weaver’s 10-month-old sister in her arms. Just then, a sniper’s bullet struck her mother in the head, killing her.
For the next nine days, the surviving Weavers holed up in the cabin while hundreds of federal agents laid siege in a standoff that helped spark an anti-government patriot movement that grew to include the Oklahoma City bombing.
Today, 20 years later, Sara Weaver has left the anger behind, finding religion — and forgiveness.

Stay safe.

And to think... he must be one of my neighbors. He sounds confused. :)

Wouldn't be any forgiveness here, quite the contrary, but as I have stated recently, I wouldn't be alive to forgive.
