Truly, there are no words for yesterday’s events.
I, like many others the world over, was shocked beyond belief at what played out on the television screen yesterday afternoon. What I assumed was to be a joyous event turned into tragedy in a split second.
I’m sure many other’s can share the sentiment of not being able to wrap one’s mind around what they were seeing, or how anyone could even contemplating wrecking such pain and terror on other people. It pains me just thinking about it, and I was only one of the many that saw it on the television.
Although it would be a sad day indeed if you could not show empathy for other’s.
There is not much to say that hasn’t already been time and time again in the last twenty four hours, I pray for the people injured, for the people who lost a loved one and for those working through the emotions of what they saw and experienced. Words are all most of us have to express the horrors, be it we were there or we only saw it through a camera lens. It is something that should never happened, and it is an event no one should have had to live through.
“Give sorrow words; the grief that does not speak knits up the o-er wrought heart and bids it break.”
– Shakespeare (MacBeth)
