Sandy Hook


Excerpt from “Pressing On” by Author Billy Charles Root

Sandy Hook

It’s okay mama
Please don’t worry about me
I’ll be fine today at school
Just you wait and see
I’ll be strong and brave
And learn all that I can
you don’t have to be afraid
To let go of my hand
we have teachers there to protect us
This much I do know
If anything happens
They know just where to go
if we’re scared they will hold our hands
And tell us that everything is okay
and when we are safe
They will go back to face the devil in the hallway
they’ll tell him
We are not here and that we are nowhere to be found
and we will all be very quiet
And not make a sound
me and my teacher
We promise to be brave
for fear cannot have us
we cannot be fears slave
