No More Please
The sunset scene was peaceful tonight, but my heart still feels heavy unrest over the Boston Marathon bombing event on Monday. It's just unfathomable why someone would want to take innocent people out like that.
Having grown up about 15 minutes away from there, makes it an old home attack in my mind. Many years myself- I've spent by the side of Comm Ave along the route n cheered on runners all day long. It's an everyday folks n fund-raising event. So many were victimized on different levels, from life to limb, to finishing the culmination of 6 months of training, robbing most in attendance of their goals, n all who are witness of their peace of mind.
Now all this other violent stuff is going on: Poison in the mail to Washington DC again, a huge explosion of a fertilizer factory taking out over 100 homes near Waco TX., yet we're still 2 days away from the 19th anniversary when we almost expect more copycats looking for this fame from insane n unjustifiable violence.
It's time to knock it off n start respecting life without seeking to destroy others. If only we could get those doing it to stop...
