A day like any other.

Mothers, fathers,

sisters, brothers.

Valentines,

a day for lovers

.

Students goofing off

in the classroom..

.

Someone heartbroken

weeping in the bathroom..

.

Typing up her paper

she wrote on civil rights..

.

He's suspended yet again

for getting in a fight..

...

..

A day like all the rest.

Difficult but livable

so we do our best.

The sunshine state,

the laws are cursed,

the weathers blessed

.

A coach for future athletes

sweating on the court..

.

A counselor overwhelmed

by what he must report..

.

The disenchanted teacher

discouraged by the system..

Shaking up her lesson plan

she plans to make a difference.

...

..

This day we've seen before,

a day of infamy.

And instantly the horror

challenges our dignity

.

Math teacher,

with your knack for numbers,

What's the probability

we'll see another summer?

.

And as the bullets sprayed,

blood was spilled.

Children slain,

teachers killed..

.

A wayward child

armed for war.

A disturbing thought

we can't ignore..

...

..
