A peaceful walkout by our students and an awesome poem written by one of my students who just completed her high school math.

Another day, another face
Another name, another place.
Not all heroes wear capes.
Some are just simple and brave.
Many lives lost and many more graves.
Lives taken at such a young age;
all because of anger and rage.
Slack Security and lack of purity
Lack of love and lack of letting go of a grudge
But who are we to judge.
A topic that is pushed aside that doesn’t get budged
No one really talks about the blood that was splattered
by the innocent. It’s a “touchy topic” so I’ve been told
But how long are we going to withhold?
How long are we going to wait?
How many more lives will they take?
How many more have to die?
How many times do we have to cry?
To really see that the problem lies in our own hands.
All for what?
To hold a piece of metal with a trigger
But see freedom is much bigger
Freedom to bear arms?
What about the freedom to live ?
Something that these people won’t be able to do.
They’re not different they’re human just like me and you.
They don’t get to love or experience life.
They were killed but not with a knife.
With a gun,maybe the last word they heard was,
I think we’ve had enough
No more guns…
No more violence…
Hear the World
Heal the World...
This poem is dedicated to the students and staff of Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida who were executed by a mad man. You will stand in our hearts forever and may you also forever rest in peace.
