It's been a couple of weeks and surely by now most of you have heard of the double murder of Pat and her son John Wilson in Sycamore, Illinois.
Pat was a member of my church, St. John's Lutheran Church of Sycamore and resided in a rural area nearby. The farmers in out region have had burglaries for years, just as you all have. But this is more brutal than anything we have ever experienced. To beat to death two elderly people for a car is way over the top. People are so nervous there is talk of what can we do? How can we ever protect ourselves anymore? People feel helpless.
I put this in the safety column to bring it to your attention.
