Sometimes you hear about something on the news that totally blows your mind away. Some of you may know, we watch a lot of paranormal shows here at the Hotel Thompson. That’s something that intrigues us. In watching these shows, you get to know some of the people that you see. And with social media the way it is these days, you even get to chat with these people from time to time. You may not have met in real life but like people here on the blog or on Facebook, you become friends.
Mom spoke to one of these friends a couple of weeks ago when she posted that she and her husband were separating. Of course, we never know the circumstances from any marriage, behind any closed door or what takes place between a couple. You don’t throw judgement, you support the decision and try to help.
Yesterday morning, the estranged husband kidnapped his wife and held her hostage in Nevada. There was a police stand off and SWAT was called to the scene. The husband not only ended up killing his wife and himself, there was also a third person whose name has not been released yet.
This situation has just touched my heart so hard and I had difficulty sleeping last night from thinking about it all. After doing some research on line, I saw that there was some difficulties in the relationship since earlier this year and one or the other was charged with domestic violence on two different situations. It still doesn’t make sense why it needed to come to this. What did it solve? You have the family and the public/fans of the couple just questioning why? It makes sense if you are having difficulty in a relationship to move on and give each other some breathing room. Why did it have to escalate not to 1 but 3 deaths is just unimaginable.
Friends and visitors to my blog, if you are in a relationship with domestic violence, please get help. Don’t stay. Don’t be a statistic. Call the National Domestic Violence Hotline. I know that’s easier said than done. And I know that none of us know the exact circumstances to this case and that there are always two sides to every story. But please get and be safe. Life is too short and precious.
