Even the dead are waiting …..
They certainly are and they shouldn’t have to…such disrespect.
You’ve captured this horror in such a few words.
Thank you Ellespeth, I just don’t know what else to say about the inhumanity of this act, it saddens me.
So sad. xx
It certainly is, it makes me wonder if mankind has completely lost its mind. 😦
Well-written Dom. I simply can’t understand the type of monsters who rejoice at these deaths, who have such little respect for human life and human dignity.
Absolutely. It makes no sense whatsoever. People like these are really nothing more than thugs and criminals who feel empowered by having and using weapons for the destruction of life.
