Darkness fell upon the city. 

The afternoon smiles vanished from faces – never to return.

A man lifted himself from the pavement and continued forward.

A boy waited for his dad to appear at the finish.

Both had something stolen.

The citizenry rushed towards a blood stained sidewalk.

The pain cut deep.

Cries settle permanently within the streets.

Was the intent to divide?

If so, I would bet the opposite.

Anger makes arrangements to visit.

Selflessness and resiliency are longtime residents.

My thoughts are with this old town.
