It Must End

The start of my day has been marred by news of the death of a young man.  It stung my heart to hear that he had been gunned down by a stray bullet. My heart is heavy.
  I watched this young man grow up with a promising future only to be snatched away by a trigger happy coward.
When will the madness end ? A gun doesn't make you a man. That drug hustle doesn't make you a man. A real man works honestly and legitimately for his keep.
  I'm tired of hearing of my young Black brothers being killed in the hustle of street life.  Gun violence within the Black community must end.  Too many lives have been lost. Too many young lives imprisoned. When will the madness end?
