This is a section for your thoughts, poetry, art, any memorial you may have for anyone who has ever been a victim of a violent crime. May you have been one. We are not victims, we are survivors.

An unrecorded song by musician/activist Ani DiFranco about the school shootings:

The Teeth The sun is setting on the century
And we are armed to the teeth
We're all working together now
To make our lives mercifully brief

And school kids keep trying to teach us
What guns are all about
Confuse liberty with weaponry
And watch your kids act it out

And every year now like Christmas
Some boy gets the milk fed suburban blues
Reaches for the available arsenal
And saunters off to make the news

And the women in the middle
Are learning what poor women have always known
That the edge is closer than you think
When the men bring the guns home

Look at where the profits are
That's how you'll find the source
Ff the big lie that you and I will know so well
By the time it takes this cultural
Death wish to run it's course

They're gonna to make a pretty penny
And then they're going to hell
He said the chickens all come home to roost
Malcom forecasted it well

Are we really going to sleep through another century
While the rich profit off our blood
Yeah it may take some doing
To see this undoing through
But in my humble opinion
Here's what I suggest we do:

Open fire on Hollywood
Open fire on MTV
Open fire on NBC and CBS and ABC

Open fire on the NRA
And all the lies they told us along the way
Open fire on each weapons manufacturer
While he's giving head to some republican senator

And if I have to hear one more time
About a fool's right to his tools of rage
I'm gonna take all my friends and move to canada
And we're going to die of old age
