September 3rd   Labor Day…..

In the past, today would have been a day that many would be off from work and neighbors, friends, and relatives would get together, cook out, have a few drinks, and just enjoy life.

Not today.

Phil from Hwy 72 came to the neighborhood. There’s been a problem. To sum it up the Blue Bandanna Gang hit the farm. What awful luck that this happens just two days after our six arrive there. Best account looks like 12 gang members that attacked just before lunch. Six of them escaped with their life – six did not. They killed 8 people – including Mike and Neil.

Oh my god – what have I done? If I had just let everything be Mike and Neil wouldn’t have been on the farm. They would still be here in the neighborhood. Mike would still be with his wife Jennifer, and their 6 children. After Phil left I sat out back behind the shed crying. All I could think about was those poor kids. Now Jennifer is alone. Now those kids have no father.

What have I done?

M came out and tried to make me feel better. It helped – a little. After she walked away and I saw Caleb and Aaron talking to M – I made a decision. A decision that I swear on my parents graves I will fulfill even if it kills me.

Those evil, pathetic low-life’s will pay. The blue bandanna gang will pay for the pain they have caused. They have killed Mark. They have killed Neil and Mike. They have killed countless others including those over on Walnut Street.

I am not exactly how it will be done but it WILL be done.
