    I AM AT A LOSS RIGHT NOW--I Knew Kortneigh McCoy (student at Frostburg killed)

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/1...n_1079417.html

    As I wipe away the tears from my eyes, I have to post that I knew Kortneigh and her family rather well.
    I have heard her sing in church, felt her hugs, and 'broken bread' with her on several occasions. I've
    even had the privilege of watching her grow up. This is senseless...and has got to stop.

    I heard it on the radio on Monday but didn't put two & two together...and then I heard Jeff Johnson
    on the TJMS give his commentary today...and when Jeff said that he knew her...it clicked in my mind. OMG...
    I broke down in my livingroom...tears just flowed. I called her godmother/my sawrah hoping she was
    going to tell me it's not true...but said it was true. Sheets of tears streamed down my face...
    and the crying jags come & go.

    I'm going to sit with her mom & sister now. What do I say? What do I do? I can't take this but had to get it
    out right now...and put in in the 'safe place' called DHP...so I can put on 'game face' for a grieving mother
    and sister.

    Thank you, DHP, for allowing to post this...and know that this is more cathartic for me to post than anything
    else.

    I AM FLOORED...

    Lately, it's gotten to a point that I have to take a deep breath before I open the newspaper in the mornings on the subway rides to work. I personally know several people who have been involved with some kind of tragedy.


    Sorry for your loss.

    violent behavior of young black girls astounds me. the ability to embody that type of rage is so the anthesis of female nrg.

    The student at Bowie State worked for my company during the summer, and I know her mom. She works with us as well. Very sad situations both of them.

    Sorry to hear this...but she was following her conscience and trying to help...there is a bit of comfort knowing that she was doing good, doing the right thing...I hope. My condolences to you and to her family.
