Sandy Vinge is the 75 year old Grandmother that was savagely kidnapped, beaten, and robbed recently. If you missed the news, she opened her door to a Teenager that recently sold her a vacuum, when he came door to door. Apparently he returned to her home and asked to use her phone. After kindly letting him in, she turned her back as he was using the phone. He started punching her, kicking her and then robbed her. He, and two other teens, then beat her more, threw her in the back of her car bound in tape, and drove around with her in the back of the car. Her nightmare continued for 26 hours, until they were pulled over for a traffic violation, only then, was she rescued by the police officer.
The young man that did this to her, had the audacity to roll his eyes when the charges were read. What is wrong with these kids? Who does that? Seriously, what fun is there in beating an elderly woman? Particularly one that was kind to him?
This dear sweet Grandmother was on the Today Show this morning. She was so dear. She still doesn't understand why they did this to her. She said that now, even the doorbell, makes her jump. She is covered in bruises and told of how much it hurt being punched, kicked and bounced around in the car. She is recovering, but that innocence, that welcoming "come on in", has been stolen from her.
My prayers are with her and her family that are overjoyed that she is able to spend Christmas with them. You can beat they, as well as others will keep a careful eye out for our loved ones. We should all be thankful for the love and saftey of our elderly.
What a difference a day makes ...
