Well, Cory is doing much better. I think he knows he didnt cause this and he is really growing up to understand life better. I think his reaction was the fairly normal reaction to seeing this trauma laid out directly in front of him. He was one of the first people on the scene and saw Clayton before the rescue got there. It had to be extremely traumatic for everyone who saw that. Cory actually felt for a pulse. He knew he was dead but he so hoped. Amazing to me that Cory can actually be the strong one in these situations. He has people going off all around him and he is being strong. He did break down with me and his dad but that is what we are for. Last night, some crazy, idiotic fools came over to his place and started a brawl with some people that were at his house. One was the girl who slapped Clayton and another was a boy that was there. I can understand why they got into it with the girl but have no idea why they got into it with the boy. They beat the **** out of the boy and broke his jaw and nose. He will have to have surgery. The girl got bad bruises. Boy ended up having to go by ambulance to ER last night. He was strapped to the board with a neck brace on and was choking on his own blood and Cory had to flip him over on the board or he would have choked to death. TG Cory was right there! Now its like the Hatfields and the McCoys out here and I am not sure why. Someone is likely to die over all this fighting. I am glad that this boy's mom owns half of Lumberton because that means the cops may do something which means maybe Cory wont end up avenging this beating. Maybe. I just hope the cops can stop this before these guys who beat this boy up come to Corys place and try to beat up Cory. Sigh. Cory wont take it. There is already too much blood lost in all this. And I had such a good week until I got home!
