To say “I’m doing my part” in this equation wouldn’t even be just. I didn’t know the deceased. I’ve never been in this store. This store is a full 15minutes from where I live. And yet, I’ve done what I could with the resources I have. I’ve done what I could to bring a sense of understanding and logic in an otherwise misunderstood, illogical, random encounter. It’s not where you’re from, it’s where you’re at.
After the swim tonight I decided to come by the liquor store where. the shooting took place yesterday/Sunday afternoon.
At least here in front of the store there’s a strong sense of community that lingers . Somehow there’s a family missing a child, a father, a loved one. There’s no writing that I can possibly do to appease and the pain. I am but a witness from the distance. But I am also clear that this takes place all around the world. My answer to this and all violence is to please love die neighbor. You very well might be the one who needs the love. However if you are in need, the best way to get it back is to give it. There is such a great feeling and giving. I can testify to that . Try it. It could very well save a life. God bless those who have experienced loss in this and other violence around the world.
Ps : sheriff pulled up behind me while I took pictures tonight and I couldn’t help wondering if he was going to question me. However he basically said “sad isn’t it?” My answer: “yes sir”
