For once, I don’t have the words.
There are none.
None to express the level of hurt and rage building in my chest.
I knew my government didn’t care; in fact I’ve known for years.
What I can’t reconcile, what I will never accept, is this level of unbridled wickedness.
Nothing that happens after this can make up for what happened today – a thing that should never have been thought of much less executed.
In the past week, I’ve seen a river of bodies unaccounted for.
Women, men, wives, husbands, children weeping as they share their horrid encounters with those sworn to protect.
We asked for one thing; Justice!
And the response was Blood and Tears
Usually I seek comfort in words, but
Nothing can take away this hurt.
Nothing can take away the pain.
There are no words.
