South Carolina Church Massacre

All too frequent this scene is played out where people are senselessly massacred. How many more will have to die before those who profit from selling guns realize the sorrow and pain it is causing innocent people and their families.  In a place of worship where people gather to worship nine are brutally murdered by the GUN yes the GUN, that was once again in the wrong hand. How many more will have to die before stronger GUN laws are put in place to protect the lives of the innocent.

How many more families will have to suffer the agony of having their love ones taken from them in the gruesome fashion? The act committed against these people is just sheer evil. There was a GUN in the hand of someone who had no respect for the lives of others. Dylann Storm Roof,   took away those people’s lives leaving their loved ones to mourn their loss. For those who justify the continued sale of GUNS as if they are nothing more than toys I ask of you when will it be enough. How many more will have to die?

There are no words adequate enough to comfort the grieving families. May God shower you all with strength as you face one of the worst tragedy imaginable. The Grace of God be with you all and may their souls Rest In Peace.

“Gone Too Soon”

Like A Comet
Blazing ‘Cross The Evening Sky
Gone Too Soon
Like A Rainbow
Fading In The Twinkling Of An Eye
Gone Too Soon
Shiny And Sparkly
And Splendidly Bright
Here One Day
Gone One Night
Like The Loss Of Sunlight
On A Cloudy Afternoon
Gone Too Soon
Like A Castle
Built Upon A Sandy Beach
Gone Too Soon
Like A Perfect Flower
That Is Just Beyond Your Reach
Gone Too Soon
Born To Amuse, To Inspire, To Delight
Here One Day
Gone One Night
Like A Sunset
Dying With The Rising Of The Moon
Gone Too Soon
Gone Too Soon

  1. Senseless death by any means is a tragedy. It will continue until we learn to respect and care for one another. The tools of death have evolved for eons with no changes to avarice, abuse of power, and self interest, or mental illness. Societies are paralyzed, unable to solve this riddle and so we accept death in greater numbers for senseless reasons preferring to use an after-the-fact adjudication and simply move on leaving the horrendous social ills that lead to countless victims in place unabated. It’s not a South Carolina problem. It is a global problem. It is an affliction of our humanity. If we are serious about stopping senseless murder, we need to start at the root cause and work our way out from there. I truly believe in America, a political solution is impossible. This one has to be handled by a united population, not special interest groups on both sides of the issue with a political agenda. Finally, I don’t take issue with your position or emotions that support the innocent victims of this horrendous crime. I take issue with our inability to solve the problem in a meaningful way.


      1. Yes, that is very much part of the problem. We don’t need political mayhem, we need long term solutions. We also need to focus on the victims and their families.


  2. Courageous words in the wake of yet another tragic shooting. Our state just passed a law to close the loophole for background checks on private sales, and you’d think the sky was falling, there’s been such a fuss. Bravo for speaking out.


  3. Marva such a horrific event and My heart bleeds for those left behind as well. How many lives will it take before gun laws change? In Australia thankfully we do have strict gun laws but it took place, after one of the worst massacres in the history of Australia. So many lives lost, when are they going to realise life is so more precious.


    1. I don’t know if that is going to happen here. Those who sell guns are more interested in making money rather than saving lives and any move for stricter laws will face resistance!


  4. We absolutely must get better at reading the signs prior to tragedy. I find it hard to believe that anyone who carries out a crime of this magnitude just got up one day and decided they’d loose their mind. There had to be signs and we can no longer afford to ignore them. Prayers for the families of the victims.
