Treasure Island

Jaclyn Brantley


Angels


Tears shed while blood runs red.
The fright in their eyes and families are saying good bye.
A child dies with no good reason….Why?

A gunman took their lives while others are wondering why. No last hug, no last kiss, can’t shake the feeling or catch a grip. No one would have thought a school wasn’t safe.
You send your kids to school and never expect a day to take a turn. Lock it down, lock it down, there is a crazy man in town.

Who would have known that little babies were going to turn to little angels in a blink of an eye? No need for good bye because they are all going to be by tour side letting you know that they are safe now. No need to hide with the angels by your side.

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
