One of the worst things that could have happened to a good friend of mine happened last night. My friend Mollie and her girlfriend Kristene were out in Portland at a park and were gunned down. Unfortunately, my friend Mollie lost her life during these events. She was so young and full of life, only 19 years old, she was a girl I met in my English class last semester. She was sarcastic and full of spunk and we fought like cats and dogs. We worked on papers together and and created a video about Oscar Wilde that I am very proud of. This was an even more striking blow because early into the semester I found out that I actually knew her father. Mario and I had taken a class together the spring semester before, we are both History majors and hated our math class. I want to say that I am so so so sorry about the loss that he has felt. I lost my grandmother a year ago and I know how hard this can be. I want to say that I love and cherished your daughter as a close friend, I know it was one of the hardest things for her to come out to you only a couple of months ago but the fact that you accepted her so easily and readily so how compassionate and understanding you are. This is a hard time for everyone who knew her and I want to say that this will not be easier anytime soon.
Much love and prayer to the family because I know I will miss her greatly!

Please keep Mollie and her family in your prayers. I may not be a very religious person but i will be praying every second to making sure that they catch that son of a bitch who killed my friend and hurt her girlfriend.
