Texas Justice

Texas Justice

Last Sunday, down in Texas, a killer paid a call;
To a sacred congregation, at a religious meeting hall!
He had concealed a loaded shotgun, with murders on his mind;
He thought his prey would be defenseless, but that was not the case, he’d find!
.
He pulled his weapon out and fired, two innocent Souls lay dead;
But then, before he could continue, some bullets landed in his head!
For a trained firearms instructor, had saved this saddened day;
He blew his sickened brains out, and put the demon right away!
.
So, instead of what could have been dozens, only two dear lives were lost;
People thankful that their lives were saved, but crying for the painful cost!
The epitome of mixed emotions, solemn solace for two dear mates;
Paired with joy and jubilation, that it had not been many mores fate!
.
.
Two innocents slain
But before he could kill more
The monster went down

This poem is about the church shooting last Sunday, in White Settlement, Texas, a suburb of Forth Worth.  By God’s Grace, a horrible massacre was prevented.  Of course, we deeply mourn for the two innocent Souls who lost their lives.

Oh how tragic and touching. I still have goosebumps. Reading the story was hard, because you described the scene and church goers so easily. I bet it was hard to write. 

I pinned this poem with pride. 

Thanks for sharing the poem.

My Dear Katina,

Oft times, when something moves me so deeply, I find that my pen glides freely, trying to record words that will have bearing on my readers.  Needless to say, this travesty so easily guided my thoughts.

All my love,

My Dear Friend Greg,

Thank you for your most astute comment.  I cringe to think about what could have taken place, had this monster not been stopped.  I'm afraid, that unless things change very quickly, this is the beginning of our end.

Peace and Love,

My sentiment exactly. However, they have to find a way to keep the people who have mental illness from being able to buy a gun. However, they could always buy them on the street or in the black market. Glad that this brave man, saved a lot of lives.

My Dear Leah,

Thank you for your wonderful comment.  Here in America, there are very bad people who do not want stiffer gun control laws.  It is far too easy in our country, for someone to obtain a gun either legally or illegally.

All my love,

Hi Larry....Too many tragedies...but thank God someone had a gun.  This is why I am against gun control...It would leave people defenseless....victim to people like this that should not have the guns to start with.  The people will be in my prayers in Texas.  It could have been so worse, you are right!  xo :) Love n Hugs

My Dear Cherie,

The person who took down this monster was a licensed gun carrier, in fact, he taught people how to defend themselves.  It is so hard to segregate the righteous people, who will use weapons for only self-defense, and those who employ them to take innocent lives.
I am sure those two lost Souls will appreciate your prayers.

All my love,
