Everyone’s talking about guns
again
We need more than talk!
We need to wake up

These killers
are us
our brothers
our sons
our friends

Ask them why
why they hate
why they rage
before they kill

Be love to them
even if they turn you away
Love
the only way to stop them

But first
stop idolizing
the smoking gun
the idea that guns are freedom
and power
They are tools
like the instruments I play

I didn’t play in an orchestra
before learning to use my tools
Nor should children have guns
maybe not even toy guns
before we show them
all they might do
