Prayers, Crimes and Victims

There are those who commit horrible acts for reasons inconceivable, and though my heart breaks for the innocent victims of such crimes, my mind often questions the obvious, yet ignored warning signs that seemingly flashed before many of those victims.

One of the alleged victims of Stephen Stanko, an obviously educated woman, invited a man recently released from prison (after having been convicted of the crimes of Kidnapping, Assault and Battery of a High and Aggravated Nature, Obtaining Goods in False Pretenses, and Breach of Trust With Fraudulent Intention) to reside in the home she shared with her child.

As I pray for comfort for the friends, family and associates of those believed to be victims of all criminal acts, I also pray for understanding and acceptance without judgment. Most of all, I pray for the children who have no control over the circumstances in which they are placed.
