It Happened On a Thursday

It happened on a Thursday.
The feeling of fear,
of loved ones never coming home.
It happened on the fifth,
The day I felt my safe haven crash down,
suddenly thrust into reality.
It happened in November.
Some hurt and beyond repair,
some felling loss,
43 forever fallen people.
It happened in 2009.
The day some heard gunshots,
some saw fear,
some wept.
It happened at Fort Hood.
Security threatened by one of our own,
looking for a way to move on.
It happened on a Thursday.

Okay so after completely freaking out that people actually read my poem, I'd like to thank all the comments and ratings. I'd also like to take the time to remember not only the people of Fort Hood but to all people in our Armed Forces.
