Yesterday, only a couple blocks from where I was volunteering at the Carver Baptist Center Uptown in the Garden District, Guy McEwan was shot and killed around 5:00 PM. The newly-turned twenty-year-old was a victim of a senseless shooting. Supposedly, the shooting is linked to his participation and cooperation in testifying in another murder trial earlier in the week. While I'd only met Guy once or twice, it saddens me to know that this reality exists where I live. While I'm conscious of the issues on a daily basis, I can sometimes easily ignore it because I'm not affected. Well, I am now. Please, pray for families involved, and the 12th ward community. Someone mentioned to me that Guy was worried about this earlier in the week. When I was 20, I worried about not pissing my Dad off, or getting caught drinking. Seriously, how do you not worry about getting shot? What is that?

I'm Done Quoting Song Lyrics

I'm ready to start writing again. I cannot help feel a bit uninformed though. I have a lot to say, just don't know what to write about. So, this is where you will come in. Faithful readers, in the comments below, ask me random questions you want to know. Anything. Simple or complicated. Or ask me to write about something specific. Ask me what my favorite cereal is or who I will vote for in the upcoming election? Of course these are examples and I have already dedicated space on this blog for that, so please come up with new questions. This is up to you, the reader, however many of you are left. Thanks!

i wrote it down, and i remember

"How I Remember"
by David Bazan
Fewer Moving Parts EP

I go out in public now
More than you might think
But only after several drinks
That's how I remember
And if I see any girl
Ive ever met before
I run like Hell for the door
That's how I remember
Memory records
Selected shorts
And interpretations
Then later plays them back
As gospel fact
That's how I remember
