“As I sat this morning, reeling from yet another school shooting, I found myself wrestling with which actions need to be taken to stop all the madness. What is the answer? Gun control measures? Mental health intervention? Then I received a message from my daughter who works as a mental health therapist in New Jersey,” a part of the letter reads. 

The poem:

Bereft of their laughter

There is now not a sound

As we lower our children into the ground 

Small hands and feet

Buried six feet deep into the earth of the world that failed them.
