Haunting Stories

We sometimes stumble on writings that haunt us for a very long time or even for the rest of our lives especially when such events occur within our town, country or neighbourhood.
For many with good imaginations, this would be something dreadful when the picture decides to remain with us in our minds.
A lot has been going on the world; plane crashes, loss of loved ones, ISIS beheadings, kidnapping, raping of minors, neglect of infected Ebola patients in quarantined wards.
It is one thing to read about these stories, it is another to picture it happen to someone you know. It is not the words that haunt, it is the picture you created that causes fear which haunts as long as the mind can carry it.
