A Poem for Pittsburgh and All of Us by the Editor-in-Chief

Pittsburgh in Memoriam 
Shmuel ben Moshe HaLevi

The gunman did not pick and choose
As he killed eleven helpless Jews
And when the law surrounded him
He turned his deadly gun on them.

This hateful man I will not name
To do so would increase his fame
May the memory of him be erased
His life forgotten and disgraced.

Instead let us commend the corps
Who bravely stormed the temple door
And fought the gunman to the floor
Though four of them were wounded sore

And pray for the community
Of those killed with impunity
May their memories a blessing be
And hatred yield to harmony.
