This once they were saved, the babies.
The killer, dead.
Unlike the one
who aspired to live
for several rounds too many.
Oh, you innocent souls,
sweet gifts of life,
treasures of the future;
the present, stolen from you,
a mere one digit past.
This stranger’s heart
refutes your final moments
welcomes those enchanting smiles, instead.

Jesse Lewis is a direct descendant of Morning Dove, a Cherokee. He is like a man on a horse saving lives!
Thank you for visiting again! Thank you especially for more information on Jesse Lewis! May I ask, if you are engaged in research on Native American history? My readings have been just that: readings. You, however, seem to have attained significant insight into the specifics.
Jesse Lewis is a direct descendant of Fereby Benton. He has possibly a touch of Native American origin.
My heartfelt thanks for this information V.E.G. I can’t get those children out of my mind. Your insight will help me to remember Jesse Lewis in a broader context of his life. Thank you!

sad indeed for the lost lives of so many children.if only we could give a safer world to our next generation…..
I know my wish is also one of utopia but the hurt shared is the same, isn’t it?
