"It is long and hard and painful to create life: it is short and easy to steal a life others have made."
__ George Bernard Shaw, 1921
Human blood is heavy. A person who has shed it, cannot run away.
The terrible, desperate deed – murder – follows those who commit it around like a shadow or ghost.
But worse than that, it can haunt others, victims, witnesses, family members, for a lifetime as well.
