Teacher killed while watching television.

This story strikes close to home.

My father asked if this article was referring to my former headmaster, Mr. Eyeington.

Mr. Eyeington was the headmaster of Waterford Kamhlaba where I went to school from 1990-1991.

Benjamin Strautin, my friend and former roommate at Waterford, confirmed that it was indeed our former headmaster that was slain. And also sent me the link to the initial story that he saw back in 2003.

Personally, this calls in to question the statements from people that Islam is a peaceful religion. If this was an isolated incident, then it would be a little different, but more and more these kinds of things are happening.

Rest in Peace Mr. and Mrs. Eyeington, you did touch lives and the world is a better place because you were in it.
