    The praying really gets redundant on this forum. I do not mean to offend, but we do not need to know who is praying.

    truetoself

    In response to this person... I disagree. I SAY KEEP PRAYING AND LET IT BE KNOWN THAT YOU ARE... geesh "truetoself". What is your deal, anyway? Know God or No God? I'll be praying for YOU.

    This did not happen at night. It was broad daylight!!! Families with children are out there at that time, spending a Saturday afternoon together and playing games. Is there any security around this place?

    So much has changed. We used to skip school in the mid eighties and hang out there all day. I guess it falls into that zone of transition.

    What they need to do when these people are caught, put these people's parents or guardians in jail along with them for allowing them to grow up to treat people like that.
