i am not entirely sure who this note is to.

it started on friday last week. i saw the man crushed to death.
a human life. squashed. like a fruit.
i don't think i saw life the same after that.

a few days later was the terrible accident on third mainland bridge.
i hear the headless body of a man in suit was pulled out of the wreckage.
he was going to work. the self same way i was.

now, i hear that Gabriel is dead.
cute gabriel. with a nice smile. the one who always admonished me and adviced me
not to respond to the annoying gimmicks of my landlady.
that gabriel. barely 30. is dead.

and for the first time in my life, i really asked God Why.
Why were all these things happening?
Why did Gabriel have to die?
Why did the mans death have to be so bloody

its barely one week into the month of septemeber....
and all these deaths.
Although i don't know most, i feel as though they were my friends.
my heart goes out to their family members....

as i prayed today, fearing that i may be next to mourn, i heard the word of the LORD:

No evil shall before you,
no plague shall come nigh your dwelling
The destroyer has been restrained,
becuase you have the blood on you!

Don't i just serve an awesome One?
