Ron Faust, a member of the PeaceWorks-KC Board of Directors, read the following poem which he wrote for Kansas City, MO, Hiroshima/Nagasaki Remembrance Aug. 5.
Slaughtering humanity repeatedly
Semi-automated weapons strike
At the heart of a caring society
Feelings stop for humanity
When we no longer have empathy
And we become cold and brutal
And the future depends on enough love
To counter balance any Hiroshima
That promotes mass destruction.
