Do not forget how fragile we are

When my friend shared the link on my Facebook, the hairs in the back of my neck stood up instantly. A good girlfriend of his, was missing after a wonderful night out. She was supposed to take public transportation to her car that was parked just outside downtown Ghent. Her father was expecting her at a funeral she was supposed to attend the next morning, but she didn't show up. That was nothing like her, her father claimed. He reported his 29 yo old daughter missing. People were asked if they knew her whereabouts or if anyone knew where her car was. It was no longer parked where she had left it the night before. My friend was very upset with her disappearance. Aurore Ruyffelaere was a young and promising teacher. With plenty of friends, she enjoyed life and she had a bright future ahead of her. So many people were out there, looking for her and hoping for the best. The night before Aurore went missing, a man had attacked another woman in an attempt to steal her purse. The police was investigating the possible link between this man and the disappearance of Aurore..

Tonight, at 22:17, the newspapers made the announcement that the search for Aurore had stopped. She will not come home. She will have no more wonderful nights out nor teach history class to young teens. Life has come to an end for this young woman. She had just started life, living all by herself for the very first time. She had a dog she was looking after and she was loved by her family and friends.

What has happened to this world, that people decide they can take someone else's life? How sick are you, when you murder an innocent person? Nobody deserves to die like this.. Neither did this young girl... So many lives have been torn apart again. The life of her family will never be the same. Life has stopped July 29th 2013. There will be an empty spot in their heart that can never be filled. RIP beautiful girl...
