2012: It’s the End of the World & Our Hearts Are Broken

17 Dec

The Mayans had it right

A world came to an end

Ask any parent of six or seven year old children

But there is however a conflict

About the date of this major event

This world ended December 14th in Newtown Connecticut

Our hearts are broken

Our hearts are broken

In what world does this happen?

Our hearts are so tragically broken

For the loss of 27 women and children

Our hearts are irreparably broken

This kind of a world has got to end

2012 marks a record for the worst year of U.S. mass shootings

Georgia

Ohio

Pittsburgh

California

Oklahoma

Washington

Colorado

Wisconsin

Texas

Minnesota

Missouri

Oregon

Connecticut

From a Newtown a renewed world will begin

In this our new world love shall prevail

Violence and terrorism are of worlds past

Our hearts are so deeply broken

Sandy Hook Elementary must be the last

I’m mourning for the dead

I’m calling out to the living

Let love guide our actions for renewal

And peace be our everlasting world tradition

    Very beautiful response. We should be concerned with explaining this and preventing this, but if we don’t let ourselves feel the overwhelming sadness of it all, then we’re not going to get there. This really helped me connect to that sense of loss. Thank you.

    Bless you for reminding everyone that these women and children are humans, not an issue.

    Thank you for this… we must all feel connected to this tragedy — and we must feel connected to the tragic end of all lives.

    I am so surprised that you did not mention how may animosity children are killed and the media nor NRA has any weapons control talks. out of all the platforms this has been discussed on.
