R.I.P. Billey Joe Johnson

The Grand Jury in Lucedale, Mississippi today announced in a nine page report that it ruled the death of local football hero, Billey Joe Johnson, an accidental death. The story is heartbreaking. The family of the boy will never believe this, although the information that was forthcoming may have supported the ruling. Why is it so much easier to believe a conspiracy or something evil and heinous than just to believe an accident happened? We want so much to have answers to why bad things happen to what looks like good people. It is terribly sad to know that this young man's life was cut short right when his life looked so promising. I did not know the boy but my prayers go out to his family. A real tragedy.
