  1. Guahan notes those events where a child’s life appears worthless by their parents failures. The sense of death has no meaning. This crime escalates a growing fact: Guahan morals/resposibility declines for the want of FUN and having ‘NO RESPONSIBILITY. Where was this basketball court located: recreational facility or street? No adults or supervision! Unfortunately, playing B-Ball @8pm at night satisfies Parental Non-Responsibility. Yes, Prayess for the 10 year old. This story has the markings of TRUE SADNESS AND REGRET. Hopefully, the 10 year recovers. PRAYERS to all victimized by this incident.
