Today there is a new saint

Pray for Maren Sanchez,
Connecticut martyr,
but perhaps not a national cause,
after all she was only one school girl –
not twenty,
and she was stabbed –
not a rallying grief
for gun control advocates.

She never wore the marine blue dress
she bought to go to her prom.

Be angry with God.
Watch what we teach young men,
and watch them carefully.

And remember Maren
this spring,
every time you see a girl dancing.

    Thank you, Erice. There is so much violence in American schools and it is a frightening time to be a teenager. I do not hear the same kinds of things from your home, but the controls on weapons are so much stronger there. Thank you for your prayers.
