I think what happened at Sandy Hook Elementary was horrible. Yet we live in a society that allows partial birth abortion where a child is alive and being born and its skull is crushed. But we as a society are not shocked by that. That’s OK. It’s not really alive because only the head has exited the woman’s body. So we can kill it, and that’s OK. It’s OK to kill as many unborn children as we so wish and we’re not shocked by it. They have no names. They have no photographs taken of them. Newspaper articles are not written about them. TV commentators make no mention of them. And that’s OK. We as a society allow these deaths to occur every day. Every day! And it’s OK, to crush a child’s skull because we as a society believe it’s OK. Well I don’t! It sickens me. So mourn the dead of Sandy Hook, as you should. Be horrified by the acts of a madman, as you should. But shame on us for allowing the deaths of other innocent children struggling to be born only to have their brains crushed. How many died yesterday. How many would die today. But we as a society endorse that. That’s OK. No gun was involved. A clamp is used. No one is of there to protect a child, to mourn a child, to give a damn about the child. And to our society that’s OK.

I would hope that anyone who reads my poetry understands that I write what comes to my mind and it doesn't mean I'm the reality of the words. I mean that just because I write about alcoholism does not mean I am the character in the poems. I write about those I've known and those I know and a very wide grouping that is of sinners and saints, those who know who and where they are going and those who are completely lost. I am empathic. I write in the first person because I feel the reality of what I am writing about. Like Dean Martin pretending to be drunk while performing I am not what it may seem. Just a thought as I know some out there who read what I write see the words and not the art or the understanding of the problem I am commenting on, nor do they understand that the comment is for the purpose of illustration and not my own personal reality.
