Loretta Strharsky - Boomer - Staff Poet - Fort Collins
A day of remembrance, of thankfulness, of reflection.
We will not let our fear consume us,
but I worry about the anger that takes our energies day by day
Fear might freeze us,
but anger often makes us unable to focus,
unable to direct that anger to creative, positive, intense actions.
I am grateful I have the presence of mind
to reflect on these things,
to remember those unheralded friends and companions
who have shared their energies and have worked tirelessly
to focus on righteousness, justice, compassion and love.
And to refocus my energies in these often very dark times
