A Reflection on the George Zimmerman Verdict

A boy died (again) last night.

Taken from the bliss of his teenage invulnerability.  The reason was something that wasn’t love.

20 kids died on a recent morning filled with promise.  The serenity of kindergarten shattered by something that wasn’t love.

A President, no two, no three…more.  Even a King.  Shot.  Down.   Love forgotten in the frenzy triggered by long-held ideologies.

Love and life denied by high-powered, concealed, semi-automatic, long-range, rapid-fire fear.
