    I hope the victim heals quickly. I hope the perpetrator gets the punishment due to him. This poor Mother; How must she feel about her two boys now? I do not envy her position. It seems to me that there would be some kind of choice now as to wether or not the older son will still live with them. Such a sad state of affairs for this family. They are in my thoughts & prayers.
