A mother's son was murdered for wearing a hoodie.
A daughter's mother was murdered for wearing a head scarf.
Both lived in a country that claims to be United rather than Divided.
Oh how far the Truth is from the Dream!
Not a dream though is that both articles of clothing were guardians angels.
For even in death the hoodie gave the boy warmth.
For even in death the headscarf gave the woman modesty.
Two traits the killers - the terrorists - of neither have any Thread of.
May it not be just a dream that justice is served,
That the terrorists have no warmth and modesty in prison.
Meanwhile it shall always be truth
That those taken away from their love ones
Are in heaven telling those left behind,
"Always remember I love you."
