Justice for Somer
Our small community was hit with tragedy. Somer Thompson was walking home from school and was taken. This happened literally right around the corner from not just my childhood home, but the home I moved back into with my son and sister in adult life and the home my brother, Joseph, still lives in. On the day of Somer's funeral Georgia and I went to the cemetary and stood on Blanding Boulevard, in front of the cemetary, with our purple balloons, waiting for Somer to go past so we could release them. The Clay County Sheriff's office and Jacksonville Sheriff's office were out in full force!
Most of the community was able to come out and wish Somer and her family well. Those who couldn't make it certainly had her in their thoughts. The Clarkson family prays the person or people responsible for this tragedy are found and brought to justice.
Side Note - my tushy is now famous. I didn't make the news but my rear did! Well, it is my best side, ask my husband. :)
