Scott Elliott of Election Projection.com lost his parents four years ago today when they were murdered in Iraq while doing mission work there. He has a moving tribute to them posted at his blog today. I was a fan of Scott's blog before his parents were killed, but learned through their death that Scott and I are distant cousins and that he is a fellow North Carolinian. I wish I could have met his parents. I have met Scott and his wife in person a few times over the past couple of years and immediately felt at home with them. If you are not familiar with Scott's blog, Election Projection, this is the perfect time to get to know it. He has an amazing track record predicting election results and is in the middle of a 50 state breakdown of races.
