I feel so saddened and horrified by what I see and hear on the media

I feel so saddened and horrified by what I see and hear on the media reports

I feel so saddened and horrified by what I see and hear on the media reports each

What I hear

What I hear and

What I hear and see

What I hear and see is

What I hear and see is another

What I hear and see is another urban

What I hear and see is another urban city

What I hear and see is another urban city teenager shot.

Boom, are the shots rung in the streets of Boston.God's children are dying

This is different from dying of a disease or old age

We are all God's creations

We weren't placed on this earth to die, so quickly over nonsense.

Why?

Why? I ask myself.

I love my life.

I love being able to go to a surburban school,

Wellesley is my second home.



What is happening on the streets of Boston, is not only a city problem,

it is also a surburban concern, every community needs to help find a

solution together!



As Janet Jackson sings on her Rhythm Nation album

What is happening to this world we live in?

Is it too much to ask for?

This is not a joke

Life is not a joke

Why doesn't someone listen to the cries of the younger generation
