My heart goes out to today’s victims of US flown drones.
Those ordinary citizens who lost limbs, life or loved ones.
My prayers are for those hiding tonight from US made guns.
Those innocents lost in the trenches of resource war.
My condolences are with mothers amidst US dropped chemical weapons.
Those whose babies were deformed and destroyed in the womb.
My concerns are about the runners maimed by US homegrown terror.
Those mourning the loss of freedom, safety and privilege.
My solidarities are behind those whose shock, awe and horror
Will never replay on US TV.
All are hurt by US nurtured violence, some invisibly.
All deserve peace, but we mourn unequally.
