STOP THE VIOLENCE

STOP THE VIOLENCE

Why are all our young boys and young girls being gunned down and leave the parents to put them in the ground? We see the tears feel the pain and hear the cries. For we give them life and an act of violence causes them to die. As parents we do out best to protect them from any harm we must continue to pray that the guns disarm. Our children are the future and we are losing them at an early age and if there's a witness they disengage.
 
The hurt that is inflicted after a parents loss may not be totally financial but, our hearts pay the cost. It's been so many deaths and wont seem to cease. We can have a zillion marches but, will that help increase the peace as our children walk the streets? Unfortunately we cant always be there when they are out of our sight so, we help enforce curfew and expect them to come in before night.
 
 
Even though they take their lives also during the day and all we can do is endure the pain and pray, pray I don't wish that upon anyone and I'm tired of the violence so the answer is to run. No matter where you go it can happen there too so, society what else can we do? I wish we knew!
 
 
Pray, pray is what we say and hope another child isn't taken away. Will we ever come together  and change this vicious cycle called crime that is destroying and depleting our girls and boys each time. Hopefully one day we can become a nation of appreciation and where life is cherished and not 
perished.
 
Love one another instead of senseless conflict and make a casket the last thing a parent has to pick!
 
May God bless all parents that have lost their children to violence!
