Tragedy in Auburn

It has been a difficult day in Auburn.

News broke early this morning that police were investigating the shooting death of 18-year-old Auburn University freshman Lauren Burk.

Any murder is a tragedy. But it seems much more disturbing when it happens to someone so young, and in an area that -- thank God -- doesn't deal with such stories often.

Our prayers are with Lauren's family. No matter what else happens from here on out, they will never be the same.

This writer hopes that justice will swiftly find its way to Lauren's killer.
