Tragedy
About this creation
To all those who are/were affected by this tragedy. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.



"Of Life and Death"

A life is taken, A tear is shed,
Only memories left in our head

Joy of times left far behind
Peace we struggle hard to find

A careless violent act
Compassion doth attract

People gather to mourn their loss
Now their paths do seem to cross

In our super busy life
It seems to take a little strife

To remind us of important stuff
And forget all the extra fluff

A hug, a thought, let us never blot,
And give life a second thought

From our first step to our last breath
Live our life ready to greet death

▀George Staples▀

Sad that happened. I do feel bad for all the people affected. However, the connections people are making with him and the Joker are somewhat getting on my nerves.

Nice tribute George this was a terrible act of a madman. I would like to inform everyone that (If you still have TV) That the media has twisted this story. My argument against what the media says is.> I have never met a tea party-er, that 1 looks even remotely like this guy, and 2 who would ever shoot up a movie theater or anything else for that matter. The left-wing media use's everything they can to further there socialist/communist regime. We got rid of direct-tv a year ago because of the media's lies. I'm am terrible sorry for the people killed and injured in this tragedy. I am ashamed that these peoples deaths have being used to bash and degrade the very people that make up the back bone of the United States of America. Almost all Media outlets are corrupted even Fox news. If you would like to discuss this matter further email me at johndaniels2345@hotmail.com .
