Innocence Gone

Filed under: Uncategorized — migueltio @ 2:56 pm

Remembering years ago

an inner-city school

inner-city Rochester

a shooting

by some thoughtless

cold blooded fool.

 

Students very sad

feeling that they lost

any safety that they had

safety from their streets

from their scenes

daily bad.

 

That incident

then

seemed isolated

but since then

many

have become fixated

with shooting up

the very place

in which all children

try to become

educated.

 

Columbine

Oregon

now Chardon

so many students

so many tears

why must our children

attend school with fears

that on any given day

shots will ring

through their ears

stealing the joys

of their growing

learning years?

 

Urban

suburban

rural

public

private

in these schools

our children deserve

quality learning

each teach teacher can inspire

not having to remember

that their greatest lesson

was how to avoid

senseless gunfire.

 

~Miguel

 

**Prayers out to EVERY school that has ever experienced a shooting!!

  1. If we are unable to provide our children with a SECURE setting in our academic settings, learning cannot occur! Your words, your concern point to yet another thing in our society in which we are coming up short!! Our children deserve better…THANK YOU, Miguel!
