The Santa Cruz Community has suffered a great loss. A young man taken from us in his prime.
Whatever the circumstances, this horrible violence has touched me and I don’t feel I conveyed the depth of my thoughts on the matter when I spoke of it previously.
When I was sixteen, I was really stupid. I didn’t know Tyler, and I have recently discovered some of my friends in fact did know Tyler or his family. I am making an assumption that perhaps teenagerist stupidity was at play in this stabbing based on myself, not Tyler.
I feel what must be said is that I believe in my heart of hearts that Tyler Tenorio rests in peace with God.
This young soul taken from us before his time.
My heart is with all those who have lost loved ones.
I apologize if any person took offense from my previous post in regards to Tyler. I was awarded an “Editor’s Pick” on Open Salon for my efforts, but in retrospect I should have expressed my emotions on the matter rather than pure dispassionate conjecture.
