We are one

My heart just broke into a thousand pieces
Because of the images I have seen of my fellow brothers and sisters crying in pain,
I have felt the pain each bullet brought before our loved ones left us,
I feel sad for my county in this moment of darkness
I feel sad for all the families whose members have passed on
I feel the pain of the injured victims
We are one
You hurt and I hurt

My spirit is weak but my soul encouraged
As I celebrate each hero/heroine... who queued to donate blood
Each hero/heroine who sent in donations in cash and kind
Each hero/heroine who stood in prayer and who comforted us all
I must mention the bravery, amid looming fear, of our police and military
You guys are heroes
I am grateful to the journalists courageous enough to show us the suffering of the victims
I thank our leaders for standing together because we are one
You hurt and I hurt

I do not have rights to the following pictures taken by (Guram Tumasevic of Reuters and Tyler Hicks of the New-york times), …

Goodbye is the saddest thing to say,
I realize now!
Knowing that things will never be as they were,
We will never sit and laugh as we did
I will never comb your hair or feel your skin as I did...
Though we pretend that we are cool
You will not tickle or hold me as you did...
Though we pretend that nothing is changed
And no, we will not play as we did
So can we stop this pretense game...
We really have no one to please...
It just hurts
The silence

Goodbye is the saddest thing to say
Mama said that some relationships were not built to last but to learn from
I cried that day
We were thicker than blood… we were oil
I really cried
Once I thought that only sticks and bones would make me bleed
But my heart shattered when you said those words
You were more than a friend, closer than a sister
And I am still picking up the parts
So can we stop this pretense game...
We really have no one to please...
It just hurts
The silence

Goodbye is the saddest thing to say
I have to say how much I ha…
