My responses to the Pulse Nightclub killings – 2016 – just came across this in my Documents

50 Dead 12 June 2016

Tragedy struck too close to home this morn
hitting the national news in my own backyard
dubbed “the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history”
– 50 dead & ‘countless’ injured, by the latest tally –


Hearts Torn Apart 12 June 2016

Whose child was this
Whose friend
Brought to such an untimely end


12 June 2016 Never Again

Whether hate crime or terrorism
an unforgiveable act
it’ll go down in history
as a day we must never reenact


When? If Ever

It feels like a home invasion
… so emotionally violated
How long ‘til the trauma passes…
and I’m back in my comfort zone


Not a Child Anymore

I’ll worry every time you step thru that door
… more than ever before
I have a personal stake in your safety
… knowing I can’t shelter you every minute
wanting to as I always have
