fatal confrontation

from the moment she
arrived in this world
there was no doubt she was a good person
about the time she
let a captured
catfish back in the water
only appropriate and righteous actions
nearly every day occurred to her
fear was not as strong in her as the
right thing to do was
over the years the causes that
needed addressing called to her love of
the positive souls that supported them
after all the information comes out
these bright shining lights who were lost
in the fight against injustice and intolerance
on this night
now we remember her and her passions
