I can only hope, when these boys, too, grow old and weary and their allotted days on this earth are diminishing with astonishing speed, that they will look back on these acts -- and on the vile beliefs which informed these acts -- and feel deep, deep shame.

And one rather hopes, that in the interim, they will have learned better, will have come to understand more about the human condition, about the value of every life and the humility to value the lives of all equally -- and perhaps have done acts to in some manner counter-balance this indecent, reprehensible cruelty -- have accomplished some good in this world to make up for the evil which, today at least, lives inside them.

They're young. One hopes they will change.

Beyond disheartening. Heartbreaking.
