    Boils my blood. Besides cleaning up the cemetary, these vandals (as you said, likely kids) need to be forced to go and meet with each family whose loved ones' graves were desecrated.

    So senseless. Likely, kids. They don't see the graves. They only see the destruction and fun they can have. Sad.
