Prayers for the Cross Victims


It’s a sad truth relived: we don’t live in a fair world. On April 13, 2014 three innocent people lost their lives because of racism, anti-Semitism, and extreme years of hate. Frazier Glen Cross fatally wounded a young man and his grandfather outside of a Jewish center this past Sunday. Shortly after, Cross killed an elderly woman near a Jewish based assisted living home.

The 73-year-old has often been the creator of trouble, when it comes to races unlike his own. According to Southern Poverty Law records, Cross is the creator of the Carolina chapter of the Klu Klux Klan and a White Patriot Party within the state. Some may ask, why was he not arrested before if he is a known racist and KKK member? The answer is simple: you can not get locked up for hating another race.

Though Cross will be charged with murder for all three cases, I find it upsetting to know that three people had to lose their lives for one persons beliefs. Just the math alone suggests ridiculousness . Often times, I hear people say our world is “less racist” and “more fair” ever since the election of President Barack Obama. I surely want to ask those same people,” do you still think life is fair?”

Also, people try to keep the vicitms- both families and the dead- in your prayers.
