In response to ctredsoxfanhugh's comment:
How about not being a jerk and give prayers to both?
Of course prayers or thoughts, and condolences go to the Martel family, that should come without saying. But most of us here grew up listening to Remy almost everyday, he's been in our life's and not them. Negativity is systemic and going around trying to blame every person you can when tragedy strikes is the easy thing to do. Why don't you try having heart and recognize that two families lost their children and add to the good in this world and not the systemic hate and negativity.
So I'm a jerk for not praying for the Remy family?? The family that should be in everyone's mind is the Martel's...end of story.
Yes, I have also listened to Remy and watched him play his entire career in Boston and with the Angels...I like the guy and feel bad for him personally...however, I now believe they should be culpable for influencing the decision of the victim who ended up paying the ultimate price, her life!!!
I don't think you're a jerk for wanting to pray for the Remy's, although, I would not waste a second myself praying for their cold-blooded murdering son who has been a problem for them for years. Are you praying for Aaron Hernandez and his family right now too?? If so, we are far different people.
When desegregation started in schools the black children were treated terribly by some, adults included.
I heard the counselor of one of the little girls speak.
The child had to be escorted into school because people lined up to yell, curse and hurl hateful words at her. As she walked along her lips were moving as if she were talking to someone. One day her counselor asked what she was saying.
She said she was praying for the people who were yelling at her. The counselor was suprised by this so he asked her why she was praying for them. She answered by saying "don't you think they need prayers?"
This child was young, around ten years old.
Think about it. Can we at least behave as well as a ten year old girl.
