Murder's Effects

Two days ago, I blogged about the murder of a cousin of wife E, just over a year ago. Shortly before this, a younger cousin in the family was murdered (pictured). Another pupil stabbed him in the neck at school. OBSERVATION: Recently I made copies of a group photo for family in South Africa's east, without realising that he was in it. If it seems like mayhem, it is mayhem. What strikes me about it is that these are not merely crimes against individuals, but against society. A murder has huge effects, in various ways.
