Glasses Too Narrow

People are looking too far left

People are looking too far right

People can not see what is in plain sight


Children are kind

Children are innocent

Children should not have to lie lifeless on the cement


You are powerful

You are human

You should have known what you would have to do when you ran


Changes are needed

Changes are essential 

Changes lead to fewer children having to fall
