Sadness

9 Mar

I have this heart, sad as black, heavy as led. I  cant free myself of this sadness ever since the shooting of Tony Robinson a 19 year old kid, who had plans to go to collage and make something of his life.  I understand that i do not know all the details about his life or what happened at the event that led to the police officer to shoot to kill. The investigation will hopefully find the truth and justice will be rendered.  What makes my heart heavy and sad is the loss of a young vibrant teenager and why we as a developed civil society can not avoid such occurrences that seem to repeat themselves over and over again.  This should happen to no ones’s child, brother or grandchild. It is avoidable and that is what we, policy makers, people and police force should all work towards.
