The dates represent the day you left this world. The numbers in the bracket remind me that you have gone too soon. So I cry..

I cry for you because no one deserves to have their life, dreams and hopes snatched away from them without giving them the opportunity to fight.

I cry for you because of all the things that you will miss..getting a degree, a job, married, having kids and watching them grow up.

I cry for you because you were supposed to be protected, most of you were killed close to your homes..Michael how could you have seen it coming, you were asleep on your bed!!

I cry with your family..it is an irreplaceable loss. It is a great tragedy for your son that came after you into this world to exit before you.

I cry, because it seems your deaths have become the stimulus to make us deal with a problem we had ignored for a long time. Anyway, your deaths will not be in vain.

I pray for your families..that God will enable them bear the loss, that God will reach out to them somehow. I pray that the people who did this will be caught as well.

Rest in peace.

N.B Please let us pray for our young men. These are the leaders, fathers, presidents, business owners e.t.c of tomorrow. There have been so many attacks against black men all through history. We all need to stand in the gap. It is time for a revolution.

Remain blessed

I read this post when it came out, but wasn't what comment to leave. I just pray that the Lord will continue to console their families and continue to protect us as we walk though life. They were taken away too soon, May their soul continue to rest in peace.

@LOASCM: Thanks for your comment. All we can do is to continue to pray. I am loving your blog TOOOO much!

@truth: It is indeed the work of the enemy. He is trying to fragment society by attacking the home..the men in particular. We should not be ignorant of His devices.
