Of Fish and Friends

It’s been a long week, a bit bumpy, lots of high points, but sometimes sad enough to make grown men cry, (sometimes it’s good to know that the grown men I’m around can still cry). The down point was Tuesday night when two 17 year old boys speared 13 koi out of our Community College’s koi pond and brutally beat and hacked them to death. They were caught on video tape and quickly arrested the next day. When asked why… they offered just shrugs.
These were 40 year old fish that we all knew and loved very much. I heard people say that “They were just fish…” but they knew me and my daughter and would come the the ponds edge to meet us and suck on her fingers in greeting. 40 years is a long time to think even if it was just fish thoughts…
