Stockton Record: Eric Hu posted on “America’s Most Wanted” Web site

Eric Hu, a fugitive who is wanted on charges of attempted murder, has made the big time. His mug has been reported on the “America’s Most Wanted” Web site, according to a Stockton Record report published Wednesday.

I first blogged about Hu on April 27, following a wild manhunt that started in my neighborhood.  We live in a pretty decent neighborhood. Decent is a relative term in Stockton, mind you. One of the joys and challenges of living in such a diverse city is the utter unpredictability of neighborhoods and public spaces. Horrendous crimes have occurred in high end retail centers, while our church, clearly on a slightly shabby part of town, feels very safe to me.

Eric, if you’re reading, please turn yourself in. Violence isn’t the way to go. Your life still has a purpose, and God’s hand is not shortened that it cannot save you.

Speaking of Faith: the Soul of War

 

NPR’s Krista Tippett had an excellent rebroadcast highlighting the efforts of Army Chaplain (Maj.) John Morris to reintegrate National Guard soldiers into civilian life after the pressures of war in Iraq. Krista’s nationally syndicated program, Speaking of Faith “probes the myriad ways in which religious impulses inform every aspect of life and culture, nationally and globally,” according to its web site.

Please take a look. It’s especially important during Memorial Day weekend, and with the backdrop of the War in Iraq, to examine what our soldiers go through and to be part of the healing process.
