  1. A visual testimony to a story read, but rarely related to by those of us who have not experienced the emotions or physical hardship of being in the wrong place at the wrong time. It takes courage and patience. An insightful portrait of struggle.

    What happens next? Why is the conversion of their home taking so long to accomplish? Assistance within the system? The future beyond one year? Why can a wealthy media sports icon who caused this outcome not feel responsible beyond what the legal system has declared necessary? Beyond identifying the shooter he could easily set up a foundation to assist the victims (Kathy & Tom)in reclaiming their life and future as a humane gesture. The example it would set for so many young followers of today's super stars would be immeasurable not to mention a blessing for the Urbanski family.

  2. How about, why is the attorney for Urbanski also the attorney for Edwards (the guy who has been fingered as the shooter)? Is that not some sort of conflict?

    I don't believe for one minute that Urbanski's attorney is looking out for Tommy's best interest if that is the case. Looks as if the attorney is looking out for himself. Can't go wrong financially if you are playing both sides of the fence now can he?

    So, if you ask me the Urbanski's may want to rethink their strategy on this one. Not only were they victims of the shooting; now they are victims of the system.

    I wish them the best and I hope they make some wise moves. Right now, it looks like they may need to come up with a better game plan.
