I Have No Words

Paralympic superstar Oscar Pistorius was charged Thursday with the murder of his girlfriend who was shot inside his home in South Africa, a stunning development in the life of a national hero known as the Blade Runner for his high-tech artificial legs. 

Reeva Steenkamp, a model who spoke out on Twitter against rape and abuse of women, was shot four times in the predawn hours in the house, in a gated community in the capital, Pretoria, police said.

There have been unconfirmed reports that Pistorius thought Steenkamp was an intruder and shot her by accident, but the police aren't backing that up. At all.

I thought the life of Oscar Pistorius was one of the most inspirational stories in history, really, so this has hit me pretty hard.
