As I Watch

As I watch my social media feeds and the local news

I salute

I cry

I pray

I hope

I honor

I vow not to take his life for granted

Never will I take the many men and women inside those vehicles or on those cycles for granted

Never will I look at the world in the same way

As I watch

I see long lines of vehicles, long lines of people, long lines of mourners

Each coming from different towns

States

Jurisdictions

Backgrounds

Religions

Races

Ages

Anything that could distinguish them from each other

Yet, as I watch

I know they are all one in the same

People mourning

May they feel strength in their unity

May they feel pride

May they be safe

God bless those who walk the thin blue line.

I am a dreamer who loves to explore the world through words. I hope to inspire others to live in peace and be their best selves. I also have an affinity for flamingos, gnomes, and all things magical. They live happily in my gardens.
