This is from the LA Times regarding the egg donor that slashed the throats of her two daughters on Wednesday (Sept. 2nd). The third one escaped death because she was not in the home. However, that is not the point I found interesting, rather it was this:
Edith Moreno was only 12 years old, but last week the Sun Valley girl had a serious question for her friend and next-door neighbor Karina Valdez.
What happens when we die?
Karina and her parents are Jehovah's Witnesses. Taking her Bible, 12-year-old Karina explained that death was like going to sleep and waiting to be resurrected by God.
"I didn't really think anything about it because we were teaching her about our other beliefs," said Karina's mother, Irene Bell. "Edith was just a wonderful, happy child. She was the biggest tomboy. She never complained about anything. "
While I am sure that Karina is well-intentioned, I can almost gaurantee that inside her home she was told, "See what happens when people don't worship Jehovah." This is one of the things I heard at home whenever something bad happened to "worldy people."
