    It seems that is all we wake up with each morning but all we must do is watch and pray, you never know when it is your turn. Some often say they not looking for me so nothing will happen to me but you may be at the right/wrong place and the right/wrong time.We may even say will another one bite the dust and just turn a blind eye because it may not concern you until the day it happens to you or one of your own.Some people dont care nowadays,for instance a young man was shot dead by a group in a driveby and the mom took the bullet to a nearby island to see who did it ,the revenge was done but unfortunately another of her son was killed as he was at the right place but at the wrong time. People need to leave God and his work alone.
