This video was put together by my daughter.

It's about her and her brothers friends, Chelsea and Matt that were murdered.  Kids that were in and out of my house as they grew up.

I had a lot of email questions about "Cun Shangri-la"
( http://piptalk.com/pip/Forum104/HTML/000122.html )

This video and the poem are about Chelsea and Matt.

What I wrote was about the day I went to the cemetery for what would have been Chelsea's 17th birthday.  I stopped at Matt's Moms grave as Matt's ashes were supposed to be there and they weren't.

Chelsea loved the band, Insane Clown Posse (ICP), and "Cun Shangri-la" is a saying, in ICP speak, that means closely, "See you in Heaven" it's on Chelsea's marker.

So there you have it.  

It's a nasty world.  Protect your children.

When I first saw the poem, I could not put my finger on the core of it.

But you've placed it there for me.

Thank you, Susan.  My thoughts and prayers are with the families, and all of the friends left behind.
