Man Responsible for Murder and Torture in Metro Area
A 65 year old man, known for killing at least 110 people and torturing many others will be in Denver this week as part of his vacation. The man’s friends have described him as a nice guy and always fun will be sightseeing and visiting all that Denver has to offer this week. Citizens are asked not to panic if they see this man.
“He is here only to relax and have some fun and his being here has nothing to do with his normal business of rape and murder,” said his PR rep. It is known that the man will want to take in some art and culture during his time here, but his complete itinerary was not known at the writing of this article.
Lo, I have laid my hopes on this rare Earth,
that all men will know nothing but love and compassion.
Never to know hate or prejudice,
but forever enveloped in the cloak of freedom and peace.
Never to tread on the life giving ground with boots of war,
but to walk barefoot on the sandy beaches and grassy valleys of the mountains.
Where happiness springs forth from each person’s heart as pure water from a snowy brook,
and washes away any tears of regret.
To finally build that paradise that we have so longed for,
in our hearts, to be share with the world.
May your anger and hate become love,
your jealousy to happiness
and your fears to knowing.
Never to forget that we are all connected,
and we must work together to bring peace and harmony to our world.
