Have you heard? 

Have we not seen these images before?
Have we not felt the weight of these tears before?
Have we not heard the cries of too many mothers and daughters?
Have we not watched as too many sons and fathers become memories?
Have we not learned the lessons?
Have we grown immune to grief?
Or are we still searching for the limits of our humanity, fumbling blindly toward the cliff’s edge to see just how close we are to falling?
