Uvalde – Letter to the Editor

Thoughts on Uvalde

What can we say
About a country
That loves guns
More than its children

Where the passion for guns
Has stripped many of its people
Of their humanity


Where bullets fly
Instead of words
And sympathy has been replaced by apathy

Where teachers must be ready
Not to dispense knowledge
But to run and hide

Where students worry
Not about homework
But getting home alive.

Guns don’t kill
It’s true
They simply make killing easier

Gun lovers and the NRA
Are leading this nation down the path
To complete and utter disaster.
