… “ashes to ashes, we all fall down.” The two sisters giggled as they hit the ground.

“Want to go home to play?”
I wish I could.
“Want to play tag, again?”
I just want to sit here and talk.
“Mama and papa miss you, you know.”
I know. I want to go see them but I’m afraid to.
“Because of what happened?”
Yeah. 
“You shouldn’t have left us like that.”
He was bomb. No one saw it coming.
“I know. I wish I had a gun so I could shoot them back.”
Never speak like that, again, little sister. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.


*These spectral sisters are my tribute to France. May all those involved find peace. May the world one day be rid of all this hatred.
