La Mora, Sonora:
Due to the recent Mexico-LeBaron tragedy,
I interrupt my regular-scheduled blog to post
the following Memorial.
MSN.COM: US Victims in Mexico massacre were tied to family with long history of violence
My condolences to my extended-family members and friends murdered in the recent drug-cartel LaMora, Sonora, Mexico massacre.
I’m grateful to have escaped the LeBaron Mormon colonies in 1967. Nevertheless, am in a state of grief as I try to comprehend and move beyond this most recent violence instigated by competing Mexican-mafia and their drug-cartel turf wars.
My heart goes out to my relatives, extended family, and friends in the aftermath of this incomprehensible Cartel retaliation.
I pray for the survivors as they work to pick up the pieces, regain strength, and go on with their lives; while trying to deal with the terrible trauma, loss, and inability to understand how anybody could do such an inhumane thing; including murdering, in the worst manner, innocent mothers and children!
How could any human criminal leave so many suffering survivors and families to deal with a future of unbearable sorrow and missing links in their family web!
But the Mexico-LeBarons are a strong breed. Their history has proven they don’t and won’t give up easily. It’s not in their making; nor in their belief system.
You will understand better my Mexico-LeBaron extended-family members and their recent tragedy, once you listen to the following excellent documentation I borrowed off Facebook:
