A rifle is pointed at her head
And she is told
‘Stop crying or I’ll shoot you too”.

Human Kind
Is when a police officer
Could have given a ticket
Towed the truck.
But instead
Leads you out of the dark

To two young girls
One sobbing, stranded
Somewhere in the mountains
After being kicked out for refusing.

Cpl. Nathan Cirillo, was shot and killed while on honorary guard at the National War Memorial in Ottawa.
Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent, was killed after being struck in a hit-and-run attack in St-Jean-sur-Richelieu, Quebec.

Death, killed and died
Did no wrong, we cry
We cry.

Makes no sense
Why, why
Why?

Death, death
No reason why
No sane reason why.
~ Patrice

Cpl. Nathan Cirillo and Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent

Rest in the arms of God, brave soldiers

Human Kind
Is when a friend
Wraps their arms around you
As you scream in anguish
Because a loved one has died.
That is Human Kind.

Human Kind
Is when a gentle soul
Helps you pick up the pieces
Of your broken heart
And put it back together.
That is Human Kind.

Be Human Kind.
