“Enough is enough”. Those were the last three words that Mike and Matilda Adams
heard from their son five yars ago. They had tried to reason with him about
him being gifted in math, and how having a Math scholarship to Harvard was a
great honour. But their son wouldn´t listen to reason.
Parents never lose hope, but the homicide detectives had lost hope. Mike jr. was
somewhere deep underground rotting away.
On a sunny Sunday afternoon, there was a knock on the Adams house. It was a young female
detective. They welcomed her in quite apprehensive. Then the bombshell.
Corporal Smith, had received the medal of honor medal because of actions taken
in a remote mountain in Afghanistan, while firing his machine gun
covering the retreat of his squad to a helicopter, being the last man on the ground.
After running out of ammunition he took out his 45.caliber handgun and charged the enemy
when a strain bullet hit him in the head and he was dead before he hit the ground.
She explained that Smith was the legal last name his son had chosen.
Both parents teared up. “Enough is enough”. Those were words that would hunt them for the
rest of their lifes.
Stay Frosty gents and gentesess.
