There is too much death and sadness today. The Malaysian airliner shot down in Ukraine. The collapse of the ceasefire in Gaza and the rockets and groundforce invasion following. Even my writing activities have been difficult. Submitting this poem for possible inclusion in an anthology whose purpose is to raise money for cancer research. A writing prompt in poetry workshop set in a pediatric hospital unit and the sad poems that poets wrote and shared in response.
I am too numb to have any insight to share. All I can do is pray for those who have died or been injured and their families and pray for healing and for peace.

He never said it was going to be easy. There are many good people in this world and now they can rise to the occasion to do their good works.
Thank you for the reminder.
