San Bernadino

Another senseless tragedy has occurred and this gave me the idea to put in songs about different cities or places among them San Bernadino. Let us all say a prayer for those involved. It makes my blood boil to think of the party the Devil is having in hell with all of the souls of evil people coming on down. Let us hope and pray the world can find peace at last and that the Devil won’t be hanging a No Vacancy sign on his door. Love and peace to you all for this weekend.
