The Lost


                                                Innocent lifeless
                                       Pretty children rest in peace
                                             Let us pray for them

                                            The kids were victims
                                       The shooter was victim too
                                             Let's not put a blame

                                                 Exclamation sign
                                          Love family, love it right
                                        Don't loose, hug them tight

                                                  Dear educators
                                           Part of the victims as well
                                               The lifetime tribute

                                           Mourn traveled the world
                                         Burn by cause last on effect
                                               Careful in our steps

    a very sincere poem. so interesting what you said about the shooter himself. I was thinking the same thing. He and others like him in the world are victims too. What a crazy world. how can we help all the mentally ill? it boggles the mind!

    The shooter is also the result of an impact, there would be no such day for the shooter, if that person got treated right

    I can not imagine their pain. It is hard to think of the shooter as a victim, you are amazing for being able to view this in this way. What kind of pain leads to this kind of action?? We may never know.

    There are always be the cause and effect factors, every actions always had been motivated or triggered by something, that's what I have thought Richard, and I know maybe not every people could accept and understand about this but for me better not put a blame, thank you for your comment on this Richard :)wishing you a great and wonderful Christmas there :D- hug-Yanny
