When will it ever, ever end???

My heart aches for the loved ones of the mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, lovers and friends of those who lost their lives in Istanbul on New Year’s Day. I had been holding my breath, worried about Times Square, and all the other world famous festivities taking place around the world as we said goodbye to 2016 and hello to 2017. I went to bed hopeful that I would wake up to no news is good news. Sadly that was not the case. The cowardly acts of terrorism continue.

I pray for all the people who can no longer simply pick up their phones to call their loved ones, hear their voices, laugh with them, tell them about their days, and make sure they are okay. We all know that our days on earth are numbered, that the only thing that is sure in this lifetime is death. But death is not meant to come at the hands of violence. It’s so wrong. I cannot imagine the pain of those left here on earth to pick up the pieces. May your hearts heal with time.

What’s going on Marvin Gaye

Mother, mother
There’s too many of you crying
Brother, brother, brother
There’s far too many of you dying
You know we’ve got to find a way
To bring some lovin’ here today

Father, father
We don’t need to escalate
You see, war is not the answer
For only love can conquer hate
You know we’ve got to find a way
To bring some lovin’ here today, oh oh oh

Picket lines and picket signs
Don’t punish me with brutality
Talk to me, so you can see
Oh, what’s going on
What’s going on
Yeah, what’s going on
Ah, what’s going on

Will we ever really know what’s going on, and when it will ever come to an end???
May you Rest in Peace all the innocent people…
