Another American Tragedy

Bow your head for moments of silence for the souls of the servants lost to anger and selfishness.

Shake your head in disbelief at senseless violence, feel the shock settle into your bones.

Say a prayer, cry out...beg for protection, guidance, understanding.

Cradle your head in your hands at the knowledge that somehow we can't defend ourselves from ourselves.

Shed tears, share the agony of the families, friends and loved ones that are now grieving, sorrowing their loss.

Hug your children closer for those that will no longer have the opportunity.

Feel the righteous anger at the one responsible who still has the luxury of breath in his lungs.

Furrow your brow with helplessness and sadness.

Allow yourself another heavy sigh.

Watch, reluctantly, as yet another tragedy brings America to her knees.
