Letter: Little martyrs, over and over again

Posted

The priests, sheriffs, and politicians all gathered in prayer

Practiced in the art of condolence,

assuring survivors they care 

Goodbye to the children, again

Martyred for the 2nd amendment devotee

And praise to God for the miracle, for more it could’ve been

Strong armed men can now go free

it’s a price they are willing to let the children pay

surely our sympathies will protect the family,

until the next day

Jim McGaw

A lifelong Portsmouth resident, Jim graduated from Portsmouth High School in 1982 and earned a journalism degree from the University of Rhode Island in 1986. He's worked two different stints at East Bay Newspapers, for a total of 18 years with the company so far. When not running all over town bringing you the news from Portsmouth, Jim listens to lots and lots and lots of music, watches obscure silent films from the '20s and usually has three books going at once. He also loves to cook crazy New Orleans dishes for his wife of 25 years, Michelle, and their two sons, Jake and Max.
