About the Poem
It's difficult to find the words to describe what we, as a country, are feeling right now. The anger, the sadness, the confusion, and the fear are so jumbled up. We must comfort one another and find the strength and courage to go on.
We MUST let our voices be heard!

I've tried to find the words today
to tell what's in my heart,
a way to vent... a way to share
but how is one to start?
How do we write the horror
of the thousands who were lost?
How do we pen the terror felt
as lives became the cost?
How do we say "Good will prevail -
we shall not be defeated."
How do we shout with confidence
"Such acts won't be repeated!"
How do we quell the anger
reaching far beyond the brink?
How do we spill the endless tears
that flow in crimson ink?
How do we rise up full of pride
in silent rage no longer?
Together, my friends... we must be heard
one voice... united... stronger!
