"A Poem On The Occasion Of Another Mass Shooting"

Thanks to Dylan Brody for writing this: "Out Of Respect" - 


Out of respect for the children
let us not speak of gun control.
Let us grieve in silent outrage
lest one of those small figures
carrying memories of fearful
moments, cupboard cuddled,
waiting with a teacher for an
end to either deadly shootings
or themselves think this horror
might have been averted
had we all been willing, even once
to dream beyond heroic violence
to the far more challenging, more
courageous, more inspiring vision
of heroic peace.

To see the rest, go HERE.
