On Monday the 2nd of October we awoke to find “once agains.”
Once again, there are senseless deaths.
Once again, mothers & fathers are without; sons & daughters are without.
Once again lovers are without.
Once again, there are the questions of “why” and of “evil.”
Once again there is doubt and confusion on who and what and where to blame.
Once again there are the voices saying,” This is not the time to have this discussion.”
Once again there are sounds of tears as voices are silent; no more to speak.
Once again there are “thoughts and prayers” being lifted up.
Once again lives are horrifically changed.
Once again another chance for change.
My hope is that what happened in Vegas does not stay in Vegas. Can we put an end to “once agains?”
