Independence Day

July 4, 2009

Today someone died who desperately wanted to live.

Today someone was raped and couldn’t fight back.

Today someone was abused by someone they trusted.

Today someone killed to protect their family.

Today someone left a baby in a dumpster.

Today someone stole because their kid had nothing to eat.

Today someone could have helped but was too afraid.

Today someone broke free from a violent spouse.

Today someone sat in their car and remembered a gunshot they weren’t around to hear.


Sometimes the only freedom we have is the freedom to make the choices that take us to the place where there are no more choices.





You don’t f*cking deserve it, dad . . . but I miss you.
