America

A shout
Lost in the night
A scream
Never heard
A cry
For help, destroyed
A plea
To save a life
A pull
A shot of a gun
A pop
As it crashes through skull
A death
An innocent slain
Because
America
The beautiful
Turns their head away
From the suffering
The helpless, the poor
To anyone
A life lost
Because of ignorance.

    There is so much violence on our streets today, Gabby, and it has become so commonplace that people ignore it. Have you ever seen "Little Murders," a play (and movie) by Jules Pfeiffer. This is exactly the point he was making when he wrote it. When violence goes unnoticed, we're in big trouble. Very well expressed thoughts. Best wishes, Carolyn
