VICTORIA SOTO

* This poem is in memory of Victoria Soto, one of the teachers who died in the Sandy Hook shooting. Victoria hid students in a closet to protect them from the gun fire and died trying to protect them. Victoria loved life and was a selfless person.



The gates of Heaven open as a beautiful woman enters.

She is holding boxes filled with white doves to go out to the world.



As she walks further into Heaven she sees a  line of notes saying:

Thank you and We Love you.



She follows those notes to the end,

And greets her students with a hug.



The woman says to them,

No need to thank me, you were worth taking the risk.



She then gives each child a dove to hold.

She says, write a message to share with the world.



One , Two, Three

Each child lets go of a dove with a message.



The woman asks,

What message did you write?



The children say,

That a beautiful angel named, Victoria, has entered the gates of Heaven.
