This... (In Memoriam)

by Kevin White on 12/17/12

This is the yard where the children should be playing.

This is the school where the children went to learn.

This is the place where a town will now be praying,

Seeking solace in each other; trying to discern


Why does it have to be that children have to die like this?

Why do we fail to see that reason’s lost its voice?

How many more must die before we put an end to this?

When will we all stand up and make the only choice?


This is the place where a monument will one day stand.

Toys and flowers already mark this mournful, cruel spot.

This is the feeling that I hope we never will forget... and

This is the moment when this madness all must stop.


In memory of the 20 first grade children and 6 teachers who were gunned down

at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut

on December 14th, 2012

Kevin, you have embraced the anger and grief we all share as onlookers to this tragedy.

It's not the road you are on, but 
the direction you've chosen that determines where you end up.
