Is this our new normal?
Bombs exploding in crowds?
Children learning peace and living violence?
Blood stained streets?
Media loops implanting chaos in our brains?
Tears, candles, sadness, compassion,
endless questions of why in countless languages?
Police turning to the darker man in pain, raiding his home first?
Evil is not owned by one race, one people, one faith.
Love, however, is available to all.
Today, let’s choose.
