Newtown School tragedy

Dec 17, 2012

At the Block Island Times, we're keeping the community of Newtown, Conn., and all victims of the shooting and their loved ones in our thoughts.

Some ways you can help.


Just before Christmas

Eleven days before the one celebrated

as Christmas, anticipated

by children it took one man of cold vacancy and many

guns to slaughter innocents and dreams

only one

to murder anticipations

of lives unlived and how much

more must it take to say no

to the holding of guns by those

who hold lives in contempt in empty unmercy
