San Pedro boy struck, killed by hit-and-run driver
This eight-year-old was killed on the same street Bekah was killed on...not in the same area, but on the same street. the story says that in this case, the hit-and-run driver may not have been at fault. however, that driver did not stop and has not yet identified him/herself, which i think [and hope!] would constitute a crime.
but what gets me is how could he? i just find it so hard to imagine hitting/killing a pedestrian and driving on. so fucking contemptuous toward human life and limb...so cold.
my first date was in 1969 to a performance of "Hair" during its first run at the Aquarius Theater...i'm hearing in my head just now, "how can people be so heartless? how can people be so cruel? easy to be hard...."
In this case, this little boy's 19-year-old brother was shot to death less than three months after bekah was murdered on the same street where Andrew Silva died. A sister died at two days old. There are two surviving children. my heart breaks for this family and i share Andrew's father's rage and bafflement at the actions of the driver who killed him.
Who am i, what am i
A picture's worth
I stand on the sand, and I'm rocking grief to sleep in my arms.
