The 2016 workplace murder of Ryan Birse and Thursday's workplace mass shooting in Collierville, TN
The following WVPI post from September 25, 2016 is self-explanatory:
The WVPI believes "Ryan's Story" is particularly compelling right now, in light of the mass shooting two days at a Kroger's grocery store in suburban Memphis -- the same state of Tennessee where Ryan graduated from trade school.
According to published reports, the active shooter at the Kroger's supermarket worked there as a vendor.
Ten of the 15 people shot by him were employees, doing what Ryan was when he was savagely shot dead in 2016: Working for a living.
The five remaining people shot by the perpetrator at Kroger's, one fatally, were doing what all of us routinely do: Shopping for groceries.
Olivia King, the lady murdered at Kroger's, was like Ryan's father Tim Birse and mother Karen Bischoff Rea: A proud parent. Ms. King is pictured below with one of her three sons, a member of the United States Air Force:
