two things brought tears to my eyes today, one
was a heartfelt response to tragedy, President
Obama speaking eloquently and meaningfully
about the senseless death of 20 children
the other a stirring expression of hope, poor

the possibility of a better future for themselves,
out of nothing but nearby garbage
may they all find their way to a more serene
