Light a candle.

Here it is.
The 23rd month anniversary since this nightmare began.
When I woke up this morning I took a deep breath and prepared myself for the month that is inevitably coming.

One month from now, we will be recognizing the 2 year anniversary of the murder of my son.

On July 27th, I will be forced to relive the day that someone attacked my son.

Then the following day (7/28) I will wake up knowing it will be the anniversary of when Corey died.

No matter what I do, no matter what I say… no matter how much I beg… On those two days, I will have to admit that we are no closer to solving his murder than we were the day it happened.

When will there be Justice for Corey? When will someone step up and say, “Corey Mattered!”?

Am I the only one that counts the months? And now the years?

Is this like how you keep track of a baby’s age? Monthly for the first two years, and then by years and half years? I don’t know the rules for this.

Maybe at 24 months there will be justice. Maybe 25. Maybe 26. Maybe 2 and a half years.

Tonight I’m lighting a candle.

Just one candle for justice.
