Irony of true lives

Wisdom falls on deaf ears,

Beauty on blind eyes

"Pac was probably one of the first male figures that I had in my life that saw the beauty and the talent and my intelligence separated from sex.
That’s something that a young girl usually gets from their father. I didn’t have that. Pac was the first one, that it wasn’t about sex. It was about you, you are a beautiful woman, you’re talented, you’re strong, I respect you and you are my girl.
You’re gonna sit right here and I’ma protect you, and I’ma make sure, if nothing else, you get what you need, and that’s what our relationship was like.”

The bodies of two Tampa teenagers were discovered Thursday morning on a roadside in Duval County.
Angelia Mangum, 19, and Tjhisha Ball, 18, were found about 1 a.m., according to law enforcement. A witness told Jacksonville news station WJAX the teenagers were bound with zip ties and lying on top of one another.
"Two witnesses were driving by and they saw bodies and they called 911," Sgt. T.K. Waters told news station WJXT.
Officers were dispatched to Sisson Drive, near the intersection of Main Street North and Clark Road.
Investigators suspect foul play and are trying to determine the causes of death.
"They were in an area where they would have been noticed, so I think it was fairly recently since they’d been left there,” Waters also told WJXT.
A medical examiner has taken the bodies to determine the cause of death.
"I just don’t understand what happened," Ball’s sister, Crystal Moore, said.
According to Moore, both women had been living in the Jacksonville area off and on for approximately a year and a half.
"I feel like sometimes that I failed," Ball’s mother, Jerlean Moore, said. "What could I have done? What could I have taught her better? It hurts…it really hurts."
It’s a pain that’s only worsened by the fact that no one has been caught.
