The Tragedy

He mowed down so many 
and the blood is still 
warm on the ground
Leaders spoke of healing 
Another mass murder 
There are far too many of them
Blood, blood, blood 
Screams, screams, screams
One asks oneself 
whether people are really good
are are they evil 
I read somewhere that there are places souls go which not even demons 
dream of 
That is the case 
Find solace however you can 
Peace, Shalom, Peace

    Very sad event Matthew, I think an awareness of selfless for the west as a Whole is a start; the selfish society; Does not seem to be helping true life Quality..For the greater populace..! I Think a trickle down effect of a Self-lessnes is Needed..!
