Violence Metastasized

October 7, 2015

The Realty of Our Violence

By Hermene D. Hartman


“Fear approaches. The violence has metastasized and the terror is expanding. ”

When I first heard the word Metastasized I understood it had something to do with breast cancer, knew it was bad. Today, reading N’Digo’s Magapaper for the Urbane, my fear has increased. Guns and shootings have become too invasive in America. My neighborhood is infested with guns. We are losing this generation to killers.

Many on the news say they are not going to let fear rule their lives. I have poor eyesight and will not carry a gun, and I’m too old to run.

Where are our gods?
