A memorial poem for the victims of Uvalde
Through Feed Your Spirit Writing, I teach online writing workshops focusing on spiritual growth. I am humbled and grateful to share this powerful and timely work by one of my participants Julianne Theodoropulos.
It happened in a state where I do not live
In a town I’ve never been to and know nothing about
It happened at a school where my child doesn’t go
To children who were his age just one year ago
To a community of which I’ve never been a part
To parents I’ve never met with now shattered hearts
To those who’ll never know, for reasons none of us can see,
How they’d come to be known for what happened
At a time, in a place, so unconscionably.
