Death reigns on the evening news, as we are shown reports of more police shootings. Marches and protests follow, as blame is passed and opinions are drawn on both sides. It disturbs me greatly to see this happen over and over again. Sadly, it seems to me, no one mentions the one thing that could have prevented many of these deaths from happening.
Tragic death lingers
Daily on the evening news
Trial by media
~ as accusations fly~
Sadly no one speaks
of what could keep them alive
