I once again find myself without words. How can I adequately express my sorrow at another story of 12 lives snuffed out by bullets from a gun. In the town of Virginia Beach, twelve people went to work yesterday not knowing that they wouldn’t be returning home. Not having any clues that their lives meant nothing to a disgruntled employee that had a gun.
12 people had their dreams forever silenced, due to one angry man with a gun.
12 people will never see another gorgeous sunrise or sunset.
12 people will never walk here on earth again, not feel the soft green grass on their bare feet, or smell a rose, so very sweet. Not hear the call of the mourning dove or the sound of a mighty waterfall.
A countless number of people, friends and family members of the 12 victims, now have had their lives forever altered. Heartbreaking pain, all because of one angry man, who had a gun.
What has happened to respect for human lives? What is happening to society? When did the Golden Rule disappear?
Why is it so hard to just be kind?
Why are so many still so blind?
