Enough

red rain mandala s

Instead of your child,
alive, we are sending you
our thoughts and our prayers.

For dVerse, brevity.

    I think of the Florida school shooting and how empty those three words sound when compared to the life who stood there just yesterday…

    We wish we could send the children back alive were we able to, but thoughts and prayers will have to do. The painting seems to display the event well.

    Yes, enough.
    I’ve written something similar, but I haven’t posted. I just had to get it out.

    Chilling. How many more of these mass shootings must we endure before someone understands we can have sane gun control laws. Prayers no; policy yes.

    Quite so, the bloodstained paper plate and words are not adequate to abate the suffering. You have said it well.

    This post reminds me that even when we feel helpless – when it’s not clear how to effect change – making a response, creating, conversing, sharing, are so important!

    A very poignant message in the colours on the plate and in your words – nothing can bring those children back and yet the manufacture, sale and use of deadly weapons continues …

    That sums it up. Words of condolence have become more than empty.

    Violence, hate, and rage…we’ve endured more than enough of this madness! Where is basic respect for human life? The evil resides in our hearts.

    Yes, yes, yes. I am so glad that “thoughts and prayers” have become an epithet. When will we elect people who will stop killing children?

    Thought and prayers are acts of empathy. That is important but not as important as actions of prevention.
