Sadly enough, I heard of 5 gun-related incidents just last week alone
And what’s even scarier is that 4 out of 5 of those incidents hit really close to home
Guns were made for protection but now they’re seemingly objects that should be condemned
Because at the end of the day, we’re taking away lives almost faster than we’re creating them
A Thursday evening on a college campus with the sun beaming and students shuffling from space to space
What started off as a regular day was suddenly interrupted by the issuance of a shelter and place
1 killed, 1 in custody, and a drug deal gone wrong was the precursory
Who knew that such a tragic incident could happen on the grounds of a campus like Kennesaw State University?
A regular night at a bar and grill that would soon turn from sweet to bitter
An atmosphere filled with good vibes until an altercation began over spilled liquor
None killed, but 3 injured all because pulling out a gun was the very first instinct
The crazy thing is, bullets almost never hit the intended target and the shooter and the victim are rarely ever linked
A group of teenagers gathering together for a party to celebrate an 18th birthday
4 injured and 1 killed before it’s all over. How could a celebration end in so much disarray?
The one who was shot was a 15 year old girl with so much to live for, but her life was cut short by gunshots blazing
We say children are our future but if we’re taking away their future, what are we really facing?
Gun violence has become so commonplace and it can happen anywhere to anyone without any warning
We need to come together to decrease the violence and increase the peace so that we have less families mourning
But first we have to start with ourselves to stand up for what is right and end our silence
Our voice and actions have the power speak louder than guns, we must stop the violence
