Thinking About Tuscon



A week of grace and reflection.
Our flag is soaked with tears,
farewell bright eyed girl,beautiful angel.
Farewell mothers,fathers,neighbors,and friends.
A week of sadness and heroism.
The power of friendship and love,
greet a new day of struggle,
of a woman loved and admired.
In the battle for her life,
her eyes opened to friend's touch.
Her husband's joyous heart called out.
Love conquers over dark senseless violence.
Love will prevail and go on.
