This was written in 2014 at the time of the UCSB shootings. I am still numb. There are still school shootings. This shouldn’t be happening.
Our children go off into the world,
We’ve given them the tools,
They know about good,
They know that they need to beware
Even in the light of day,
Away from the familiar shadows,
A bright day
It turns us numb
And feeling helpless
Because we can’t live in fear
But we can’t stop it.
My heart breaks today for everyone near UCSB. Wishing peace and healing.
