” . . .only one who seems to give a damn . . .?”

This post will be brief and to the point.

“I’m sending you this information because you are the only one that seemingly gives a damn anymore.”

This is a quote from an email I received from a regular correspondent (not always public) regarding the Stacey Burns murder case. The information referred to has been shared by this individual with authorities and some of it has been shared on this blog in the past. I do not know what the police have done with this information, if anything.

My reaction to this? I hope with all my heart and soul that I am not the “only one that seemingly gives a damn anymore.” I know that eight years and nine months can have a numbing effect on memories, but I cling to the optimistic outlook that many people, including the New Hampshire State Police, still give a damn. If not, then Stacey Burns would be saddened beyond measure, and likely deeply disappointed as well.

    If someONE doesn’t hold the torch high and long many injustices pass by and justice is never served. It is only one of the reasons I applaud the youth in Florida. The folks in Vegas. The parents in Colorado. The moms and dads from Sandyhook. And all the others left dead and forgotten. Stacey needs a spokesperson. You have done a consistent and heart wrenching job to keep justice alive for this young woman. Much as the voices of all the others have done. The coward who took her life will someday weep for shame for the pain they have caused. Keep your torch high. Those who wish you to extinguish your quest are just plain wrong. May God continue to give you strength.
