Okay, I’m taking a huge risk here, but I have to ask these questions and then I’ll answer them personally if you will bear with me.
- Is there a time limit when human beings finally say enough is enough?
- When does one finally say, “it is time to move on?”
- Is Stacey Burns gradually disappearing in the rear view mirror in the lives of those who knew her so well?
I ask this not to be hurtful but to be realistic. Our son died in 1992 at the age of twenty nine. The devastation of his loss does not got away. So, here are my answers to the above questions.
- NO! There is no time limit. Some will move on but some will continue to suffer.
- It is time to move on but with the proviso that the past is always with us. We never forget, nor do we disrespect the memory. Our son’s death was not human caused therefore cannot be avenged. The death of Stacey Burns was human caused, therefore must be avenged or justified, whichever you choose.
- Yes, in some cases, but absolutely not in others. To those in the “absolutely not” category, what are you personally doing to be a force in finding her killer? Calling authorities for updates? Writing to your representatives for help to solve this horrible murder? In my opinion, if each of us, personally, can say that we have done one thing to help Stacey’s memory be preserved by being actively involved, then maybe there is hope. Otherwise, there is none. The portion of his blog devoted to the murder of Stacey Burns has gone on for years with no appreciable effect. My last post abut the “eleven suspects” was greeted with some ridicule. So be it- It is coming up on ten years, folks! Is there a time limit to justice for Stacey Burns? Only you who can make a difference can answer that. Duke
