Day: 312, Shooting: 307 for 2018

November 11, 2018

 

Thousands of thoughts and prayers

Went out to families in Thousand Oaks

 

And I wonder

Who is listening?

Anymore

When the norm

Is now one mass murder

A day

 

Thoughts and prayers

No more

Prayers place the power

in God’s hands

When this is not the work of God

 

As citizens

We act

We write

To newly (re)elected officials

And we won’t just ask

But demand

Change

To come quick

Even though we know it won’t

 

Yet numbers don’t lie

And each day that passes by

Another round of bullets burst

And we’re back to ask:

What good are thoughts and prayers

without action?
