30 Day Writing Challenge — Day 24: Something You Miss

Peace of mind.

Earlier this morning, two local school districts were under lockdown as Texas Rangers and other law enforcement looked for the suspect of a double homicide in a county just a little north of here. Although I didn’t fear for myself, I feared for the communities involved.

Tonight, I keep reading the updates from the newest attacks in Paris.

This is awful. When will this end?

Please don’t jump all over me and say we need to go bomb the crap out of the Middle East. You and I both know that is not the answer. As far as I know, the crazy murderer here in Texas this morning wasn’t a jihadist. There are systemic problems that lead to behavior like this.

And we as human beings need to figure this shit out.
