The Daily Post’s Daily Prompt 1/14/2016 | Ripped Into the Headline
“Write about something that happened over the weekend as though it’s the top story on your local paper.”
This past weekend, as well as this week so far, has been filled with nothing but heartache for myself and so many others. After the death of David Bowie, and the announcement of the death of one of my favorite actors, Alan Rickman, this morning… I don’t think I can handle anymore headlines of any sort. I went browsing online, trying to find anything to lift my spirit this morning, and came up horribly short.
Nothing but stories of death and murder.
Even as I sit here typing this, I have two other tabs open. Both are stories about the horrendous murders of young children. Maybe some day, these stories won’t make the headlines, because they will cease to happen.
My heart is shattered. I don’t want to write today. I don’t want to think. I just want to cry and mourn.
