Barry Van Allen

Just Dumb

This one just escapes me,
Amish girls from 6 to 12 were lined up at the blackboard,
and executed!
When the troops were coming in...
he shot himself!
So, your'e a troubled man,
what's the point of killing little girls?
Why can't you walk out in the field with your gun,
and get it done?
I guess that you got exactly what you wanted!
From this day forward, everyone will think,
'What does it take to be a moron? '...
... and think of 'What's his name'!

The coward of Lancaster county.

More importantly, they will remember how the
victims forgave.

    A sad situation mirrored in the news again lately (Virginia Tech) . Did society somehow nurture these wackos? Wonderful closing line above, don't think I would ever be able to.... -chuck (Report) Reply

    This was a terrible situation. I like the fact that you find pieces like this in the news, and bring them to the forefront, because they trouble you. It take a brave man to speak his mind...good for you!
