I am concerned and hopeful

I wonder why children are losing their lives and when it will all end

I hear the cries of mothers and the rhetoric of politicians

I see a future world where children feel safe and included

I want our politicians to find realistic solutions to this difficult problem

I am concerned and hopeful


I pretend that the world is a peaceful place

I feel hopeful in a world that can feel hopeless

I touch the hearts of the kids I have in my care

I worry that there are kids out there who feel isolated

I cry when I think of those that I know are hurting

I am concerned and hopeful


I understand this is a problem that will take time to fix

I say forget arming teachers and give schools back their support staff

I dream that all kids would feel included and cared for

I try to make sure all kids feel cared for

I hope that the concern for the children that have been lost is not fleeting

I am concerned and hopeful

As a teacher of sixth graders, ma special place is my classroom; my home-away-from-home. My first home I share with my husband, our dog Quincy, two cats, and my tortoise friend, Misha. I also have been blessed with a horse named Arjay. We have three adult children and five grandchildren, the joy of our lives. Life is good. I am an equestrian, a writer, a reader, a gardener, and I repurpose furniture.
