To the Victims of Violence

People sharing life together
Every country, every land
All of us are in this together
Created for goodness and love
Every life is precious

Only fear can cause this kind of evil
Nothing good comes from suffering on this scale

Every person: man, woman, and child 
All through the wide world should be able to 
Remember a time without violence or pain
Truly knowing what it means to be safe
Heaven knows it is long overdue.

Thanks for the comment, Jan! Wrote this after the events in San Bernardino the other day, and asked my patients to create art that evoked peace. This was my contribution! Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
