They come here every year around this time. They meaning the ‘people’ of course, many crowding around the designated site with its bows and trinkets.
Some people buy the little goodies just to give to the charities of all the events that follow after the media left. Left for the fresher story but the people never forgot, coming back not just for show but for healing.
A need for a hurting heart, bleeding from tragedies from many decades ago. Blood that never stop to flow.
Blood flowing when Japan planes dusted Pearl Harbor in red in 1941.
Blood flowing when Sandy Hook flowers screams filled the air in 2012.
Bodies floating like wild sargassum in 2006.
Bodies floating in rivers because of the Christmas Eve trough.
How many more hearts must bleed?
