    I understand, hon! I, too, have been looking closer at some of my choices. One day I'll tell you about my daughter, the miracle that became my child -- its quite the tale. After she was born, I became more sensitive to violence and found I could no longer stomach what I'd used to watch with my husband ... I kept seeing my girl everywhere. I haven't been able to write much poetry since Friday. I am feeling such empathy for the families of Newtown, but there loss is unimaginable. I will be writing my government, something I should have done a long, long time ago. I know my words will not make an impact on laws, but I need to say something or I have done nothing. YOU ARE A LIGHT, SWEETIE. But as I said, I do understand. I am sad that you are removing your poetry, but I support your exploration, questioning and need for action! xox Cyndi (PS.. like you have questioned satan, I have questioned Judas. There HAD to be a Judas. Doesn't he deserve forgiveness, too?)

    The more "liberated" we become, the more we fail as a society. Don't look for God in the school system. We threw Him out. Now we are shocked by the very society we created. We make the rules. We screwed up when we got away from the values we were taught. It's not Satan attacking our children, it is us inviting him to do so.

    Catie I think this is one of the reasons I deleted my poem, I really do understand where you are coming from, I, like most of the reasonable, sensible world out there, am still struggling to come to terms with this and I too would ban every violent video game, they must be having a mental effect on todays youth....

    cont...then he said "kids love to blow up their enemies"...and said, "besides, it's just pretend!"... Unfortunately, the fact is that that is how most of our kids are being entertained, and are being taught to think....... How has it become okay to laugh and find glee in violence?! How is it okay to laugh and find glee and and be joyous over darkness? In the smallest ways we have to make choices, to make the changes. If writing a poem, or choosing a gift, or helping a neighbor, or smiling at a stranger, or one small polite gesture can make little differences....only then can we take part in the change

    Dear Catie, As Frank says, you are being hard on yourself today, and yet I applaud your thinking and I applaud the idea of each one of us taking responsibility to make the world a safer, more gentle place. In every small way, if each one of us took these sad times to make love and kindness rule. While shopping last week for my grandkids, (video games for my grandson were on his list)...I asked this young man (clerk who was helping us select) about the content of one game...and about the violence. He was excited and enthusiastic about one game in particular.....and I asked him how appropriate for an 11 year old, and the young man brushed off my concern like I was some old school fuddy duddy.
