Thirty Questions--Thirty Days Day 13: A letter to someone who has hurt you recently

Dear_______,

My world would be so much better if I didn't know you. Life would be much more simple without the worry that is you. You epitomize despair and destruction, and yet cannot be destroyed. You cause pain wherever you go. I pray that God takes you from my life and replaces you with goodness and hope.

Forever affected,
Katrice

This letter is written to the despair, murder, and mayhem that rocks my city to it's core. Last week a young man of 15 was shot and killed not far from my home for nothing more than nonsense. The killers are all under the age of 20 and are rumored to be part of a gang. This letter is to the gangs and would-be thugs that roam our city, preying on our children. I have a daughter 18 and a son 16 that I fear for on a daily basis. They are good kids and all it takes is to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. I pray for them and for my entire city.
