Huffington Post released the names of the victims of the Charleston Church Shootings:
"The identities of the nine victims of Wednesday [June 17, 2015]night's shooting at a historic black church in Charleston, South Carolina, have been released.
Rev. Clementa Pinckney, Tywanza Sanders, Cynthia Hurd, Rev. Sharonda Coleman-Singleton, Myra Thompson, Ethel Lance, Rev. Daniel Simmons, Rev. DePayne Middleton-Doctor and Susie Jackson were shot and killed by" 21 year old Dylann Storm Roof.
This is the verse I wrote after this happened:
The seams, the seams are ripped
The dreams, the dreams are stripped
From their bodies, their cold, dead bodies
The beams, the beams don't shine
Those dreams, those dreams are mine
The lives are broken, the lies spoken, the senselessness
Justice where are you?
Have you become meek and hidden?
Step up to the task, you do not have to ask
Justice shall be met unbidden
