Christian Choir Teacher Murdered


Recommended Posts

Saturday night (Nov. 29th) a Christian choir teacher, Kathy Blair, was bludgeoned to death in her home. This happened about a mile from me in Austin, TX.

Blair served as the director of the Christian Choral Society of Austin, a music program for home-schooled students. She taught about 250 to 300 children between the ages of 4 and 18.

She would sometimes have groups of students come to her house to build sets for musical productions (as reported by the Austin American Statesman).

Strangely, police originally said the killer knew Blair and that there was no risk to the public, although no arrest had been made. Days later they are saying they have no idea who did it. There has not been any mention of a husband, so she was single, or at least living alone.

I have a sense that this was a blameless woman in her early 50s who loved music, living a blameless life and adored by all. The home-school community must be devastated and it gave me a sense that the home-school community is quite large in this area.

The news stations mentioned repeatedly on Sunday that parents were trying to determine how to break the news to their children who had been her students. I'm assuming this must refer to younger children; it was all over the news on Sunday morning and I'm sure social media was on fire immediately.

If there's no evidence of a break-in, the usually say it's someone who knows the victim, even though they may not know who.

Be sure to keep your doors and windows locked until they find who did that. If they don't know who, it's possible whoever did it didn't know her, but just opened an unlocked door.

      My sweet pup was diagnosed with a brain tumor in September. She passed away in my arms on Thanksgiving morning. It all happened so fast. She didn't want to eat anything the day before, but prior to that was ok. Knew it was near time and had booked an appointment to take her next week. However, she decided for me. She was only 8 and really was one of the best dogs. She never met a stranger, human or dog. Life isn't the same without her.

      I made my first Granny Square! After nearly 30 years of knitting and crocheting this was a project I never did. Until now! I needed something to do with my rest of very colourful yarn and now I am very happy. I need to try different needles with my yarns but I think I found something nice for the future.
      I needed only 3 different youtube videos until I found a person who explained the concept slowly and repetitive and with words I can understand. I hate when these tutorials make me feel dumb.

      You know what I hate most about subtle racism? The gaslighting. Stop cosplaying as a nice person and say it with your chest.

      We had to put our 14 year old dachshund, Trinket, down today.  She was fine Thursday, but by mid-morning yesterday, it was apparent that something was really wrong,  She had zero energy, lost her appetite and began walking into corners.  By morning I knew it was time for her to have her final visit to the vet.  She had lost about a pound and a half recently.  RIP, Trinket!

      Horrific! A 6 year old boy was murdered, and mother severly injured, in a hate crime in Chicago. Reports say they are both Palestinian Muslims and were specifically targeted because of that. Thankfully the man who did it is in custody 
      This is pure evil
