LIVES DO MATTER!

More tragedies across this nation .....
 -- needless loss of life
 -- families... loved ones ... friends left to mourn,
 
 -- communities, cities, states 
     deprived of individuals contributions to all our lives.

Hopefully, we will unify .....
  -- listen 
  -- to understand... appreciate our differences ... respect one another

May we correct .....   
  -- our individual
  -- our national shortcomings

May we have love -- not hate

May we have peace!

  1. Well said and I share your hope for us all.

    I also admire the structure of your poem. It's a real art to be able to express so much emotion with so few words.

  3. Yes, ALL lives matter and we need to get over the fear of the unknown and let others into our lives ...no matter what color, age, sex, ethnicity ... Love is truly the answer. Will we ever accept that? Thanks for your lovely entry.
