How a child loves !

To the Shooter in plain language

Sighting down the barrel of your anger you exploded into all the other's lives . A fiery hot penetrating hatred of all things alive , of all things harmonious . Maybe you sat back near the playgrounds on warm summer days and listened to the purest pleasures of the din of happy children playing ,laughing , living . And then you decided in your misery that that just cannot be , that there should be no one laughing when you sit in your miserable stench of selfishness .

But then you couldn't have been happy to just put an end your own miserable existence , no you grinned in a sadists grins , your face contorted in ghastly indifference . But although you only felt your ending in the small numbers of death in this world , you still see yourself winning . And in a way you have ,because this is what you've done by just one small child's death .

One small child's life that was so much more than your own miserable existance . One small soul snatched from hundreds of those who loved him or her more than life itself ! Oh , You brought more than just one death , each and every life that touched this small child , each one will know the scent of the funeral parlor forever , they will forever see the round chubby cheeks of innocence lying there lifeless on this earth . They will never sit and listen to the playground noises again while they smile in heavenly pleasures . No , they will never understand the need for the minuscule size of a child's casket , of the soft velvety lining that will cradle them into the next world , the one that lies half opened with the teddy bears and the dolls tucked in beside them or the favorite "blanket " . Nor will they ever forget the smell of autumn perhaps and the scent of the cedar bushes that lined the road leading to the school .

And yet , there is that one thing you will never touch , that you can never take away from the rest of us . No matter how miserable you become nor how many you want to hurt. The heart and souls of those you have taken knew more love than you can even imagine ! More happiness than your fiery useless existence will ever have extinguished , They are the little heroes and the lights of love ,that you could only dream of being . You won absolutely nothing in the game that you played . While the child who loves , wins out forever . And they still know what you never will , each one of them knew pure and absolute love .

Ruby , as you know I am a sportsman , the heritage of hunting and fishing , and shooting has been passed down to me through time . The smell of gun cleaner and the smooth feel of a dark finished piece of beautiful walnut is almost magical when you add that to friends or family members at a hunting camp in autumn ! And the pure pleasure of watching a young man and his father walk into the woods is awesome ! A father and son may never be closer than when the father or grandfather passes this down the family line . The uglyness of this dispicable human being is absolutely nothing to do with the heritage of hunting or shooting ! I do understand your pain in this tragedy ! I do , yet only reason will change this dark part of mankind ! And its going to take a multitude of issues to change it ! Thank you for understanding my point of view !......:-}

absolutely achingly beautiful. I felt every emotion. Felt as you spit out each and every word to the heartless, soulless scum and I loved every minute of it. Your written words are the concrete thoughts of every single person touched by what has happened. Even in death those little, precious souls are so much more than "he" ever was. Thank you...

Voted up and awesome. You are so right a child loves with a pure and unconditional love. Just wish that idiot had let them have the chance to experience their childhood and grow up. Hope all your wishes and dreams come true in 2013!

Always ......No RUBY ! There I'll remember now ! I dont know how to stop this ruby ! And none of us can I fear . Soo innocent these little souls and yet ! The force in which any lost childs spirit lives on is probably the most awesome power to never be understood ! I truely believe that ! It is not an easy issue by any means .......even to understand ! Hugs my beautiful friend ! And also........Thank you for what you gave up in the career that you chose or that chose you !...........your friend .Ed !

ahorseback...Happy New Year to you too! And I hear you loud and clear. One of this country's biggest problem is that punishments do not fit the crime. I say an eye for an eye. Too bad the coward shot himself...I would have LOVED to see him in front of a firing squad. On second thought, I bet you would have done the job quite nicely! And thanks again for this hub...it's precious.
