Sadly, I really didn’t think that much about it as gun violence is a little too common in Toronto. 😦 I figured it was two “gangbangers”. Not that that makes it acceptable, but it makes it a little more understandable.
I was wrong.
Watching the news this evening made me sad and angry. What I didn’t realize this morning was that 23 others were injured including 22 month old.
Gone are 2
people kids who could should have had a bright future.
One was a 14-year-old girl; same age as Princess. I can’t … I can’t even imagine what her family is going through.
The other was a 23-year-old man who wanted to become a police officer. From the news he seemed like an upstanding member of society.
My heart goes out to the families of the departed. I will keep them in my prayers.
There is talk of retaliation. 😦
I am reminded of Gandhi’s quote; “An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.”
This madness needs to end.
This city needs to get back to being “Toronto the Good”.
