On this day,

when, if we remember,

we pause to remember

the word that should

catch in our throats,

and stop our breath,

on this day, as we contemplate all

of the horrors it contains,

let us not be blind to our inconsistencies.

for other horrors lurk

may they not dim in the glare

of this, but allow it to highlight

humanities capacity

for inhumanity….


still we declare others





on this day,

as we remember

may we be re-minded,

to strive to say again,


and in our remembering,

knowing we have already failed

may we stand

to truly face ourselves….


on this day, may we seek to strive

to find the way of unity

through love…
