Sandy Hook Remembered…

i have been
inured
to violence–
it blasts
from the radio
reaches out
from the TV.
when I hear of tragedy
i turn off the news
pray for better times…
but when I heard him
(the President)
read their names
my heart broke—
remembering the little
ones that I had taught
so loving and free…
that still saw
with angel-hearts
with
children names
of hope
and tradition.
how do we make sense?
what next do we do?
how do we heal
and bear the pain
of what we have
fostered here—
of this world we have
created?
again i pray
for better times
for healing
and for
hope.
