Shooting in Mount Pleasant

Washington Post article about a man shot and killed while walking his dog
apparently no news is good news

my heart goes out to the man that lost his life for no reason at all
I grieve for the friends and family of this man
makes me realize how fragile life is.... both on and off the bike

this incident is sending the wrong message
we are not to be prisoners in our own houses
we should feel free and safe to walk the streets of our own neighborhoods
we should be careful
but
we should not be scared

Vigil for Gregory Shipe to be held September 20, 2005
Meeting at the Mount Pleasant Library
A candle lit procession is scheduled to leave the library at 8:45 arriving at the 1700 block of Irving at 9PM
