I live in Orange County California. I'm a Christian and I've been working as an AV sound tech for three years at this church now. The study of
conspiracies, paranormal, supernatural things, led me to become a Christian about 6 years ago...but that's beside the point of this post.
On January 1, 2012, a good friend a great person who volunteered ministering to kids in our skate park didn't wake up (the death was not drug or
alcohol related). He was just 21 years old.
Since then, we've had an increase in memorials at our church. We went from less than one a month in 2011 to at least 2-3 a week!
Just last week, a coordinator who was loved and adored in the church, a mother and wife, lost her bout with cancer. She was 42.
One of our pastors lost a friend to a brain tumor. She was 38.
One of our greeters had a stroke last week.
Junior Seau just shot himself in the chest yesterday. (just another death)
Just last week, we had two memorials on campus going at the same time.
Tomorrow (Friday), I am going to AV a memorial in the morning, and another one in the afternoon. On Saturday, I am going to AV another memorial.
We spoke to a local coroner and she said they are turning people away because of the overflow. She said the influx of death is something she's never
experienced before in the decades she's been in the business.
Is anyone else experiencing this in their local communities? Is this just a bizarre coincidence? I get people die, but dealing with it this much is
very emotionally draining. I often cry at the memorials even though I never knew the person. Any thoughts? Something up with 2012?
