After the Horrors

The papers are full 
   of the 
horrendous - quite probably racist 
   mass murders 
After the horrors 
   we Americans 
must try - try hard 
   to keep up our usual activities
      Going to a baseball game
I felt a little worried 
    being a part of the crowd 
on the ferry 
   Friday I plan to go to Sabbath services 
our prayers are needed 
   in these dark days 
      Sporting events, thank goodness, will be played 
as usual 
   We must not give in 
       to the forces of hate!
Pick up your pens, poets! 
Denounce the divisive politics 
which now plague out nation 
We must stand together 
    to chase away
the dark clouds 
   which now ennvelop 
our nation

These are indeed, Dark Days. Devastation and hate seem to be rampant. We must learn to examine our leaders carefully before we put them into office. We also must try to elect leaders with a great deal of foreign relations experience, who have been successes with it.

After the horrors we are a blame hunt for anyone but the killer. We need to stop flaming at the mouth like mad dogs, You know the Torah! Vengeance is MINe says the Lord. Panagiota Norway had a killing today Chicago has tons of killings, nobody cares, death has to be sensational?? Panagiota... The news has blood dripping out of their mouths...awful Politicians are cashing in on graves. Sick PR

It becomes more and more difficult to watch the news. I have stopped traveling to Europe because of the uncertainties of unrest, yet people abroad are now being warned to stay away from the U.S.. Gun laws have to change and restrictions need to be placed on automatic weapons like the one used in El Paso. Your message rings loud and true Matthew. Bravo! : )
