Sirens

We live near a hospital.

That must be why I hear the sirens all the time.

We live in the city.

Yea, the crime is usually higher in the city.

I can’t help but wonder who is in the ambulance as it speeds by. I say a prayer and hope that whoever is inside will be OK.

I read a few articles about a string of violence over the weekend.

What compels people to commit such meaningless crimes?

A robbery, a fight, a random act – all where lives were taken or damaged forever.

I pray for this city and for all cities where the sirens blare.
