A very poignant poem. Full of sadness for those left to witness, those left bereft with no answers.
Fears of the unknown; No longer matter now-
Calculus exams will remain blank-
There will be more tears than excitement-
at the graduation ceremonies this year,
as the gun shots echo through their ears
A beautifully written stanza of waste and loss.

|There are just no words to describe the grief and anger that such an act provokes, Lisa...senseless? Certainly to us, but what was his true motivation? I wonder if we will ever know that answer or if it actually matters? How come nobody ever reached out and touched him; made him understand, made him care? Another lost soul, knowing not the value of his own life, or of the life of others. In a rage venting his frustrations by destroying so many young and promising souls...I cannot even begin to wrap my thoughts around such a notion. This is is an excellent poem, Lisa; perfectly executed (lawd, I didn't really say that did I?)with the style and grace only you can bring to the page.

Such a sad but needed write. A horrible tragedy, Lisa. What is this world coming too? When a parent sends their child to school they believe it to be a safe haven for learning. No more. The victims and their families are in my prayers.
