    My heart breaks as I hear of Terri Roberts' passing.

    I have been following Terri Roberts’ story for a couple of years now. I was aware of the Nickel Mines shootings and remember when it happened. It was a terrible tragedy. When things like this happen, I always feel sick for the victims, and their families. But my heart also goes out to the family of the perpetrator. It was on one of the anniversaries of the murders, that I saw a story on Terri Roberts. I immediately was drawn to this tiny, kind, and strong woman. I felt badly, to hear that I had missed meeting her when she was in Berlin, Ohio, signing her books. I had hoped that she would return someday. But sadly, she kept getting weaker, and weaker. Coincidentally and sadly, my longest and dearest friend crossed over to Heaven, the same day that God called Terri Home My friend also had cancer. Both Terri and Carole fought the battle, and now they are both at peace in Heaven, with their Savior, Jesus Christ. No more suffering, nor heartache. Yes, Terri is at peace. Her husband, children, and family are in my prayers.

    Teachng forgiveness

    My condolences to the family and friends of Teri Roberts. I felt so deeply for her at the time of the shooting, wondering how a mother could cope with the aftermath of a crime committed by her own child. To also be dealing with cancer only complicates dealing with life on a daily basis. She proved to be an incredibly strong woman who has become an inspiration to many of us. May God bless her and may she rest in peace.

    Considering the impact...

    The world has lost an amazing woman… There is so much we can learn from this event and people’s reactions to it. I think it’s easy to miss the fact that there are many “shadow” victims when violence happens–people who we might not necessarily think about and might not realize they too have been affected. I know this incident had a profound effect on me and, I suspect, on others who we might think are quite removed and not directly affected.

    Terri’s story provides yet another dimension. As much as violence impacts us, so does forgiveness and kindness. And just as there are people who we might not realize have been affected by the event, there are people who we might not realize have been affected by the forgiveness.
