So many things in our world are happening today. So many things that none of us can control. Last night before 2 a.m Heath Miller and his wife, Mirelle, were victims of the violent crimes going on in there neighborhood. A masked gunman by the name of Rishard Tomlin, 22, broke into their home. Miller says his dogs woke him up, luckily he was able to grab his gun because shortly after the dogs were barking he heard gun fire in his house, he shot back and hit Tomlin. Tomlin was killed.
The Miller’s were even talking about moving soon, because of the high crime in their neighborhood. Neighbors even stated that they don’t know why something like this would happen to the Miller family. They are nice, and quiet, they are only seen when walking their dogs. Heath Miller is a music teacher at Howell L. Watkins Middle School in Palm Beach Gardens.
Miller’s mom spoke for him, stating that he is upset about the situation. She states though, that he had to do what he had to do.
I agree with her too. If someone is coming into your home, shooting at you in the middle of the night, what are you supposed to do. Sit back and get shot yourself, let them harm your family? It is sad, the problems that you read or see everyday. Family of Tomlin states he never did anything like this before, yet he had a police record. I am sure Tomlin’s family is suffering from the loss, but I am glad that Miller stood up, that he fought back for his life and the life of his wife. Otherwise, it could have been him or his wife in the body bag.
I hope that this renders into the young children’s lives who knew Tomlin and said that he was a good man. I hope they see, that if they do bad like Tomlin did, it can cost them their life. I don’t understand why people turn, why people do the things they do, I do know however that they are only hurting themselves and the ones that love them.
