To remember those lost to the terrible tragedy in violence, we are presenting two poems to honor those lost to violence.  “The Field Trip” was written anonymously, as a dedication to those who lost their lives at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

The Field Trip

Please don’t cry, we’re okay.

We went on a field trip today.

A secret place where there’s fun to be had.

And the principal’s with us, so we won’t be bad.

It’s full of toys and rainbow slides.

Cotton candy and high cloud rides.

A funny zoo full of different things.

I even saw a man with wings.

We’re not alone so don’t you fear.

We’re chaperoned by Jesus here.

It’s really nice so I think I’ll stay.

And hold your spot til your field trip day.

I know Christmas is here and there’s toys to be given.

So please tell Santa that I’m here in heaven.
