Bullet through the heart
two mothers pray in anguish:-
god didn't listen.

    This stopped me in my tracks. Stunning and hugely moving little piece. Well done.

    Hi Hellon,

    one day this world will grow up and realise that killing is not the answer. I understand that punishment is necessary, but surely if we educate and provide therapy we can all feel like we belong to a civilised world - not a murderous one!

    Thank you opening my eyes to this tragic event.

    I do not understand: why should god listen when he already knows?

    Often when tragedy occurs and mothers grieving their children, not only we ask ourselves why but we also turn to God and ask him why. There is no greater pain then losing a child . I guess we never get the answer to that. Sometimes they are at the wrong place at the wrong time, or their lives were taken just because. This world we are living in is not safe anymore and life is not fair at times. I feel the pain in this write and it is heartbreaking.
