                        found poem: on any day
                       
by Sister Lou Ella Hickman, I.W.B.S.

                                                article from corpus christi caller 10/6/15

                        on any
                        day, 22
                        killed by
                        gunfire
                        . . .
                        Mass killings
                        scraped nerves raw, com-
                        manded headlines
                        . . .
                        Here’s another number:
                        8,124. by guns in 2014
                                an aver-
                        age of 156 a week
                        . . .
                        single homi-
                        cides are far more prevalent
                        and cause just as much pain
                        and suffering
                        . . .
                        on any day
