I generally write about heart transplant or related organ transplant items.
Excuse me a bit today as I write about something very dark. This topic resurfaced this past weekend when CBS aired its 48 Hours “Live to Tell” segment. It was about a serial killer by the name of Angel Maturino Resendiz. (see Wikipedia here – http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/%C3%81ngel_Maturino_Res%C3%A9ndiz )

I am the eternal optimist and I think there is good in virtually everyone. However, I am not and never have been naive to think aren’t evil people in this world. Heck, I went to school for 6 years with a guy that turned out to be a serial murderer in Ohio, so I have looked into the eyes of evil.
But, I digress …….. back in 1997 Mr Resendiz brutally murdered my son’s best friend and raped and brutally attacked this young man’s girl friend. (I’ve never met this young lady, but she has INCREDIBLE strength) It was a VERY rough time here for quite a while. VERY ROUGH!! (We were VERY close to the family, and still are)
The reason I am writing is to help me work through those old feelings. I still think, in my heart, that most people have some inherent good. However, I also know deep down that there are those that are truly evil and need to have their lives come to an end as the State of Texas did with Resendiz.
Thanks for letting me rant a little ….. I feel a bit better already.
Back to heart transplant “stuff” with my next post!!
