Sandy Hook: Our Children

Collective anguish
All of us somehow bereaved
Sorrow comes in waves

 (The grown ups, too, are
Someone's children.) Oh parents--
 How we ache for you

My students have vowed
In memoriam: to be
Kinder and gentler

  1. "I can't believe the news today
    I can't close my eyes and make it go away...

    There's many lost, but tell me who has won
    Trenches dug within our hearts
    And mothers, children, brothers, sisters
    torn apart"
