My poem for the people of Oso

Click on this link to Tumblr and read my poem for the people of Oso, Washington here.

After the devastating landslide, I felt compelled to write a response — in hopes that my writing would offer comfort and solace. I wrote “May We Now Do Great Things.”

I’m grateful that ArtsWA approved my post for Art with a Heart.

Blessings to the people of Oso: the victims, the survivors, and everyone affected by the devastation.

I know that need is great everywhere. If you can help the people of Oso, please do. Thank you.

Sincerely, Andrew

    Touching poem, Andy, that honors the people lost in an instant and helps the rest of us to view life with renewed perspective. Nothing can be taken for granted, nothing.
