Brian Ludwig, who had everything to live for was cut down in the prime of his life by;
all it takes is one punch to end a human life and it did, a sucker-punch thrown to the back of his head by;
who perpetrated an act of random senseless violence, crossing a moral threshold by taking another human beings life, that ruined lives and devastated many families in;
you are speaking to your child/brother/friend/father/partner and the next moment he is gone; you thought your own life was over; if felt like you were spiraling endlessly downward into a deep dark hole of despair until you realized;
You can be surprised to know how far you can go from the point where you thought it was the end; all it takes is;
to come out of that dark hole, to stand united and take a stance against random acts of senseless violence along with;
YOU; along with;
all of YOU can make a difference individually or collectively within a group;
One Day at a Time:
we all can make a difference; perhaps we can open up a national conversation addressing the casual nature of the violence in our midst and the epidemic of random acts of violence being carried out by our youth; educate young people they should not be too quick to resort to punching to resolve differences; and at the same time address:
the punishment needs to fit the crime; anyone who kills should not walk away virtually a free man; take away his sense of entitlement by issuing longer jail sentences along with either a monetary or a time commitment to either the community or to a charity; (if you do the crime then you do the time); no matter how many years in jail the bully may get will not bring our beloved Brian back, which takes me back to;
who will make a difference even in death. Brian was a good man who did good things.
