I was very pleased to have the following published on MyDaily, via the HuffPost, all due to the intrepid Red Room Executive Editor, Gina Misiroglu. Thanks so much, Gina. Thanks, all. ----
I don’t remember which program the news bulletin interrupted.

School photos flashed across the screen. Their names. Their ages. Four girls. Sunday School girls with perky hats and white gloves and little purses so like their mothers. Without warning on a golden morning, their lovely black skin suddenly bomb-burned, the flowers on their hats now funeral flowers, four so abruptly dead from hate.

Again, many thanks to Gina Misiroglu and the ever-supportive Red Room.
