I once knew a boy who was incredibly beautiful, even to me, a guy. He had the clearest brown eyes I think I've ever seen and his teeth were impeccable. His nose was magnificent and though he didn't have much hair, the sculpture of his brow and ears as a silhouette was something worthy of a Picasso, a Michelangelo, a Da Vinci. I never paid much attention to his body - as I said I'm a male and am extremely attracted to women, but I am told by my better half that he was about as close to perfection as she had ever seen.
Personality - this kid had the goods. He loved to play, with anyone. Rolling around on the ground seemed to be his greatest joy, but he was constantly laughing and lighting up the world, even when outdoors in the sunlight. I never once saw him get angry, though he had a way of keeping all his mates in line without ever lifting an eyebrow. He was a natural born leader and all his peers followed him lovingly. Most of us never reach such lofty heights. He didn't even have to try with the ladies - they swooned under his gaze. I don't believe he ever had any children, though I could be mistaken. With someone like that who can say?
That boy was butchered yesterday. His entire body was mutilated and cut to ribbons. His organs were torn out - no idea what became of them. His entire family is in shock and still unable to process the grief - grief that will no doubt be beyond simply unbearable or devastating.
His nickname was "Sea Lion" but his parents Christened him Daniel.
We will miss you tremendously, Danny.
This is a horrid crime and I, for one, simply am beyond comprehension that something like this is even conceivable to anyone, even a cold-blooded killer.
But then they gave me a chop and I'm totally down with it now.
