Years of loving

Lost with
one gunshot.

HAIKU POEM
ROSALIENE BACCHUS

Layer by layer,
The onion loses life, peeled,
By insanity.

Death by senseless death,
The world loses innocents;
Heaven gains its stars.

The tears of angels
Flood our universe with grief —
The tipping point gained,

Its settling unknown —
Known only this — attention,
This time, must be paid.

Innocents Lost
Ann Wilmer-Lasky
SAVE OUR
CHILDREN

I truly believe in the right to bear arms. I also truly believe
that we don't need to bear assault rifles. But then there's that
militia thing. I also believe in a well-armed militia being our
final line of defense (not sure about the "regulated" part). I
don't know where the answer lies, but I do know this - our
innocents should not be paying the price.
~ ANN WILMER-LASKY, comment made on her blog following the
massacre of 20 first graders and 6 adults at an elementary school in
Newton, Connecticut, on December 14, 2012.
