Millions, she said. Millions
have been killed
or raped
or destroyed
or all of these nightmares,
lives lost to
evil bitter souls
and does the world
cry out at such horrors?
Can we reach out
to heal, from our pedastals
without patronizing
or minimizing
their agonizing pain?
She does. She can.
And she shows us all
that we can too.
We will never forget
our own millions
and we can never forget
theirs, too.
