It was my intent to post new content on my site today. I've waited for weeks to write" Academy Award winner" Jennifer Hudson in front of her name, but sometimes life gets in the way and updating a blog or continuing the fight for equality for gays and lesbians must take a back seat.

Yesterday morning I woke up to a phone call from my mother explaining to me that my 18 year old cousin had been shot and killed. I don't understand why this happend to such a good kid. Randy was never a violent person, maybe a little outspoken like most people in our family, but never violent.

I'm still in shock and expecting to wake up from this horrible nightmare, but I've never been the type to not deal in reality, so I know I must begin to process the truth.

After a trip home to Alabama to be with my family I hope to be up and running again in a few days. Please keep us in your prayers.

death is part of the natural cycle of life, but a death as a result of a wanton act of murder is not. those who would take the life of another deserve to forfeit their own.

i am deeply sorry for your loss. at such times i usually ask the bereaved if they can remember the sound of their loved one's voice.. if they can see remember their smile...

if you can, then that person will always be with you. treasure the moments you had with them.

wow...that's a tough pill to swallow, regardless of how old you cousin is. It breaks my heart to hear of another good hearted young brotha brought down by foolishness. You and your family will definitely remain in my prayers...i will pray for strength and understanding. Take care of yourself, and remember that grieving is natural and a process. Let it flow.
