Stuff Happens

Wednesday, December 5th, 2012

As a woman, there are several precautions I take in life… It’s just something that’s instilled as you grow up, from outside influences, and social standards. Like, not walking alone on a dark street at night; during the holidays to be especially aware while shopping and going to your car; carrying your purse a certain way as to minimize theft; letting someone know your whereabouts; dating only marriage material to save yourself a lot of grief… The list could go on and on.

But, while I take several precautions each day, I know (in the back of my mind) stuff just happens. It does. And, really, there is nothing you can do to avoid stuff happening if it’s meant to happen. So, as a woman, I think about Kasandra Perkins… I like the way one close friend of Kasandra’s put it… “She was more than just a Kansas City Chief’s girlfriend”.

…I thought the same thing, even with not knowing her. Even if you aren’t a sports’ fan, the news of her horrific and untimely slaying has surely reached you by some medium. So, I won’t itemize the details. I just think it’s important to note the 22-year-old life that is no more. Mother of 3-month-old Zoey and Texas native, Kasandra was in school and planned to become a teacher.

She was a person. She took precautions like all women do. She was more than  just a Kansas City Chief’s girlfriend… and, stuff happened.
