New From Fran Orenstein

I want to share with you all a poem written by Dr. Fran Orenstein shortly after the tragedy as Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut.  It is an amazing work that needs to be spread around the globe.

Unfinished Lives

Not an auspicious day

An ordinary winter Friday

A week before the ending

Or the new beginning of the world

Only two days after 12-12-12

A day of ascendance and movement

When meteors raced across the sky

And planets began their prophetic alignment

On this ordinary December day

The world shook in fear and rage

As twenty tiny stars winked out

And darkness fell on unrealized dreams

When hope crashed in a hail of bullets

Unspun dreidls, unopened Chanukah gifts

Hidden Christmas toys waiting in vain

A red bike buried in a box never to be ridden

The unbearable agony of drifting souls

Reaching out for Mommy’s arms

Their unfinished lives

Now only a fantasy

Trapped in a Dream Cover

 

This is an amazing story about a man who is well-known throughout the pool world. The life that he lived will keep you in suspense. Somethings he does, you would never think of doing! What kind of person was he and why did he do the things that he did. He may have been a pool player, but what else was he! Why did he go to reformatories and prison! Was he with the mob or just friends with them! What has become of him today!
