Makes this middle-aged man’s heart cry

Dear Aiden, I never knew you but will never forget you.

You may have read the same news I did about the 6-year young boy who was fatally shot last Friday during a road rage incident as he innocently sat in his backseat car seat while being driven to school by his Mom.    

Kindergarten student Aiden Leos was shot and killed in Southern California when a bullet fired from a vehicle passed through the back of his mother’s car and through his back while he was sitting in his booster seat.

The currently unknown murderer fired a shot at the trunk of Aiden’s Mom’s car and the bullet continued its journey until it struck little Aiden, whose initial word was “Ow!” and then "Mommy, my tummy hurts."

He made it to the hospital but didn’t come out alive from this horrific road rage incident.

His Mom and other family members will never get to see him play baseball, ride a bicycle, graduate from high school, or grow into a young and handsome man.

As a grandfather of four little grandsons, the oldest being the same age as deceased Aiden, this news brought me to my knees.  I couldn’t get little Aiden off my mind yesterday while driving to church and driving home.  While my prayer life has been weak as of late, I found myself saying some prayers for the repose of little Aiden’s soul and that God comfort his Mom and other family members in their grieving and mourning journey. 

The tragic death of little Aiden Leos makes this middle-aged man’s heart cry.

Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum
