Response To Orlando Tragedy

This poem is my reaction to the constant terror and heartache in the news today and around the world. I'm a high school English teacher and pride myself on preaching to my students that they can be the generation that brings change and peace to this world.

Rise Above


Published: October 2016

Today another tragedy in the news,
Senseless violence from people with nothing to lose.
Never once thinking about the destruction and pain,
Instead only focused on placing the blame.
It's time for the nation to rise above,
Learn from the past and spread laughter and love.
Believe in the good and fight for each other,
Make this world safe for our sisters and brothers.
