a poem about remembering the victims of genocide.

Remember

We must

never

Be lulled

Into the complacency

Of remembering

Those exterminated in genocides

As statistics

Each man, woman or child

Murdered

Was an individual

And regardless

Of ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation

Or anything else

Must be afforded

The dignity

Of being remembered

As a unique human being

Who laughed and cried

Loved and shared

Their talents with the world

And had their right to life

Taken from them.

Even if they were

The only one

To have suffered thus

It would still be

A tragedy

For all humanity.

Because they are human

And we are human

Then we are all them

And identified with their plight

To think otherwise

Is to become desensitized

And will lead

In time

To the perpetuation

Of more genocides

Again and again

Without pity or remorse.
