Shaina was always a very kind and caring young girl. She could not help herself, constantly sharing and giving to others. It was this exact mentality that made her too weak for black friday. It was November 24th last year, black friday. The day before we had enjoyed a delicious Thanksgiving meal with all our extended family. Little did they know it would be the last day they would see shaina.
My wife, my kids, and I woke up at about four o’clock in the morning and headed to walmart. There was a sale for a 43.5 inch flat screen smart TV. It was only $150 and we were going to get it no matter the cost.
At 7 A.M. the doors opened and we bolted inside. I was unable to carry my daughter because I need to keep my hands on the cart, and obviously she couldn’t go in the cart because we needed room for the savings!
We obviously headed straight for the electronics sections, because the TVs would be the first to go. We were all very focused on getting the TV and lost track of Shaina. The only way to get to the TVs we had to fight our way through. People came at us with bats, knives, katanas, and maces, it was vicious. This sort of environment was not meant for people like Shaina. I realize now we never should have brought her, but at this point it was too late. I chose not to go back for her because we’ve wanted that TV for about a month, sacrifices had to be made.
Every we time we watch TV we think about the sacrifice Shaina made in order for us to have home entertainment. We love you Shaina and we are so proud of you, we always like to think you would have grown up to be a doctor, someone who cares for others and extremely kind.
