Too Many Heroes

 

in the news today

“They heroically confronted the attacker

and saved countless lives; but they died.”

 

we have far too many heroes these days

we have far too great a need for

far too many men and women

who die, selflessly

needlessly

saving other peoples lives

unnecessarily

would that carelessness be woken

to see

would that it be moved

to anger

would that it be aroused

to action

so that their heroic action

would not be needed

any more

would that something wise were done

 

would that our heroic men and women

could not die but live

 

WHEN WILL THE SENSELESS SLAUGHTER END?

 


Each New Day A Miracle
