I'm Outraged and Saddened

I was in complete shock this morning. You see, Jeremy sent me a text message to tell me that Darrent Williams had been shot and killed. For those of you who don't know, Darrent Williams was in his second year with the Denver Broncos as a cornerback. I remember first seeing Williams running kick off returns last year. He was amazing. He was so young and had so much of his life and future ahead of him.

Instead, his life and dream of playing football was cut short by some idiot who opened fire on his limo in downtown Denver. I don't understand why things happen sometimes. I don't understand why people are idiots and think it would benefit them to open fire on a car that was doing no harm.

I am outraged that this young man's life and career were cut short by one of these idiots. Who do they think they are that they can decide this man's fate? I am saddened because he was only 24 years old. He was my age. I feel I have so much in front of me, as I'm sure he did. I guess it goes to show none of us know what is ahead of us. Still it's a saddening shock to know he will never know.
