A Poem In Memory Of The Victims Of The Sandy Hook Massacre, One Year Later
Today I’m sad! I guess you can read why!
Remembering 26 Angels
It’s been one year, but not forgotten,
Time moves on, yet time stands still;
26 bright, shining futures,
Robbed of life, it haunts me still;
Left by parents, in safe hands,
Kisses blown, and waves good-bye;
Nobody could ever know,
That this would be their day to die;
Innocence was swept away,
As tear drops fell like heavy rain;
Boys and girls to never see,
Their loving families smile again;
Fear set in, as panic spread,
Cries burst loudly through the sky;
Now in God’s hands lying safely,
Given angel’s wings to fly;
If only angels could be spared,
And evil villains left to die;
26 illuminous stars,
Would not be shining in the sky;
Every soul with hearts of gold,
And lots of precious life to live;
A lesson we all learned that day,
To show love more, and to forgive;
Tomorrow WE may never see,
Or someone held close to our hearts;
Let go of grudges, everything,
And strive to make a brand new start;
Sandy Hook’s heroic soldiers,
Now stand tall at God’s right side;
We won’t forget the lessons learned,
December ’12, when America cried.

And I’m sure the whole world over is mourning, not just America! These children and heroic teachers did not die in vain. No matter how short a life, as well I know after losing my own child, not much older than the 20 children killed that awful December day. Every life has a purpose. A reason. Nobody was created without one. These lives need to be remembered and celebrated because they were BEAUTIFUL! And their memory always will be.
The strength that the adults showed that day, saving countless lives, is something we should ALL marvel. It shows that there IS good in humanity. In the end…love conquers all. We won’t forget these 26 angels. Light a candle for them tonight 😥 !
