Love Without Fear

Turn aside; close your eyes
Take the love you’re giving & hold on to it
Baby it’s all a dream after everything you’ve been through
Put your worries to rest and try again tomorrow

Maybe it’s not you that’s supposed to change
Show your face to the morning light
Show your heart to the flames burning bright
No more standing in the background
Don’t be scared to walk alone & don’t be scared to like it
When you show me love, the good fight starts again

Love without fear
Sure it’s harder than it seems
We all have to wake up, shake it off, rinse, wash & repeat
It begins with you & ends with me

Love without fear
My dear, dreams are meant to become reality
Little by little, it’s a start
Somehow you’ll get through this
Despite what you’ve heard, nothing can quiet your heart
Turn around; open your eyes

Love without fear

Real Games

Time to feel.

Time to feel.

One day you’ll know my heart
When you see my face
And everything will make sense
We’re not that far apart

We’re just different
We believe in different things
Yet I understand your every plan
I wish you’d fill me in & not just expect me to play along
Sure I know my role, but I won’t do as I’m told
Its not fair, its not right to stand for something just to give up the good fight
I’ve laid it all out time & again
Nothings changed except the pain that I’m dealt

One day you’ll know my heart
When you see my face
And everything will make sense
And I won’t feel alone

And when you forget
To tell me that I’m beautiful
To tell me something true
You fill me with regret
And all that is left is me alone with my hand wrapped around a phone
I’m not taking your calls
I’m done taking the fall

My troubles are too far
While this song’s in my veins
I’m dancing just to move on

One day you’ll know my heart
When you see my face
And everything will make sense
And I won’t feel alone

Yeah I’m a loser cus I don’t play to win
I don’t want to play those games
I just want something real
Time to feel

Eaton Centre Gun Scare Pt. 2

The youngest victim of the Eaton Centre shooting was awake and alert Monday after undergoing intensive surgery.

“After complicated neurosurgery, we are happy to say that he is doing well, all things considered; he is alert and talking,” said the 13-year-old Port Hope boy’s parents in a statement. “It will be a long healing process, but we are optimistic that he will recover.”

The boy, whose name cannot be released due to a publication ban, was hit in the skull with a stray bullet during a gun attack at the mall’s food court Saturday evening that left 24-year-old Ahmed Hassan dead and six others injured. Christopher Husbands, 23, was arrested early Monday after he turned himself in to police. He faces one charge of first-degree murder and six counts of attempted murder after the shooting that investigators say was “personal,” not gang-related.

Toronto police say it’s a matter of “happenstance” that three men, allegedly members of the same street gang, came to be face to face in a crowded Eaton Centre food court when shots rang out Saturday evening.

Now one of them is dead, another is lying in a hospital bed with bullet wounds and a third, who was supposed to be under house arrest on another charge at the time, is accused of pulling the trigger that sparked mass panic at the downtown shopping hub.

Notes, flowers and teddy bears have been left at a memorial outside the Eaton Centre following Saturday’s shooting.

Eaton Centre Gun Scare

“When violence like this takes place in our city, we all have to stand up and say we won’t tolerate it.”

Yesterday evening chaos erupted at the Eaton Centre in downtown Toronto after a shooter let off a string of bullets in the packed food court on the lower level of the mall.

The barrage of bullets killed a 25-year-old man, injured seven other people and sparked a hysterical mass exodus of the huge multi-level shopping centre around 6:30 p.m.

Among those injured in the incident, police said a 20-year-old man and a 13-year-old boy were in critical condition, and a woman and a man had serious injuries. A pregnant woman who was trampled in the rush to get out of the mall went into labour and another woman was grazed by a bullet.

The shooting appears to have been a targeted one that left innocent bystanders caught in the middle, and police vowed to track the suspect down.

Police are now going through video surveillance and cross referencing witness statements as they try to pull together a clear picture of the shooting and the person who was holding the gun.

“It was unbelievable … It was out of the blue,” said 19-year-old Marcus Neves-Polonio who was working in the mall’s food court when he saw a man pull out a gun and start firing.

“As soon as I heard the gunshots, I ducked under the table.”

Others who saw the shooting scrambled for cover behind chairs, in washrooms and nearby stores, while others sprinted for the exits upstairs.

St. Michael’s Hospital along with other places in the surrounding area were put on lockdown as soon as news of this horrifying incident broke out.

This is NOT a Toronto that I want to know.
When did the Eaton Centre become a gun range? Do people have such disregard for the lives innocent bystanders that they are not afraid to shoot up the busiest mall in downtown Toronto in broad daylight?

I love walking around this mall & I can’t help thinking what would have happened to me if I was there?

My heart goes out to the people that were killed, injured & scared for their lives.

Quote: Warnings & Examples

“People always wonder what the difference is between a “warning” & an “example”. The difference is that most people don’t heed warnings, but they’ll never forget an example.” – Day Break
