Soldier Shot at Homecoming Party

How do you even fathom something like a soldier being shot at his homecoming party after serving his country in Afghanistan? A solider that was still recovering from injuries he received after surviving a suicide bomber. That is exactly what happened to Christopher Sullivan of San Bernardino, Calif. Young Mr. Sullivan is listed in critical condition. His spine is shattered according to his mother. If he survives, he will be paralyzed for life.

Apparently, Christopher tried to intervene between his brother and another member of the party. It was an argument over football. Christopher Sullivan tried to play the role of peacemaker, just as he did in Afghanistan. He survived a suicidal maniac from that war-torn country. But, it is possible he won't survive a lunatic from war-torn California. What does this say about us as a nation when people are willing to kill over a sport? Back when I was a kid, we fought out our disagreements with our fists. Now, I know Christopher's brother had no idea this idiot would pull out a gun. But, can you imagine the guilt he is feeling right now? His brother (Christopher) is a hero. What is Christopher's brother today? Christopher was receiving a hero's welcome. Now, it is possible he won't live to see another Christmas. The gunman fled the scene, of course. I hope they catch the bastard.
