Take a Stand

We are at war among ourselves.
The streets are brimming with hatred.
Another senseless crime.
A tragedy fueled by intolerance.  

As I sit in my grief, I wonder.
When will it end?
I mourn those lost to a meaningless prejudice.  

I hug my kids a little bit tighter tonight.
I kiss my husband a little bit longer.
If we want a brighter future, we must transform our present.  

It is time to take a stand.
We can not sit idly by, and let cowards hide behind their fear.
Let us join our hands, despite our differences, and pave the way for change.
