Six

Gone

In a blink of an eye

And a flash of a

Wanna be right wing

Christian terrorist WHY?

 

There is never a

reason

though there are many

justifications

for these heinous

actions.

 

They've called you

a lone wolf,

terrorist,

or mentally unstable.

Six grieving families

don't care about your label.

 

I don't care

if you were

depressed.

I don't care

if you were

sad, mad, or just plain bad.

 

You make me ashamed

to be Canadian, Christian,

and white …

Because there is no equation

in which six wrongs

make a right.

I suppose with France under siege. This was bound to happen at some point. Sadly it's always the innocents.

I would ask Mexico to share their wall with you. lol
I am grieving for this. Such a tragedy and... I just don't have the words I need. I'm sending love to the North

Thank you. All this hate, on either side, fuels the other side to hate some more.
