As The Silence Of Night Is Broken
 
BANG, BANG,BANG, the nights silence is broken by gunfire. Bold flashes like that of a colorful giant sparkler lit up an ebony night as the blast from the barrel awoke sleeping families. Fear set in as mother's yelled to their children 'Hit the floor' And fathers grabbed whatever means of a weapon they had for the JUST IN CASE.
Central dispatch operators suddenly became extremely busy as 911 calls came in by those shaken from their sleep and fearful of what was happening somewhere in their neighborhood. Sirens blared and flashing lights made the scene even more frightening as police officers rushed to the area where the sound of silence was broken. Now nearing dawn the call is made 'I have a non responsive adult male in the alleyway' Sadly, todays newpaper gave more details that leave a very unsettling feeling in our city. Headlines reading 'Man in his middle 30's gunned down taking 3 bullets to the head.' And tonight a family mourns yet another victim of a violent death as the silence of night is broken by gunfire.
