Jada's Story 2

Jada’s story is horrifying

            and deeper still is the terror I feel

                        …as the mother of two boys.

Have I told them so?

            can they think and know?

                        …could they possibly imagine?

In this world and in every other

            each life is valid and therefore must be

                        valued, respected and treated thus

No one, not one form of life

            has worth that is any more than another

                        we all need each other e-qu-al-ly.
