Blue Fortitude


A psychiatrist reflects on blue fortitude as he visits the Columbine Memorial.

Columbine Memorial

Columbine/Frank A. Clark, MD

Inspired by a visit to Columbine Memorial

The wall that helps.
The wall that heals.
The wall that hopes.

The ground that grants.
The ground that grieves.
The ground that guides.

The streams that pant.
The streams that pine.
The streams that pray.

The souls that bleed.

Wall of Healing Columbine

Wall of Healing/Frank A. Clark, MD

The souls that breathe.
The souls that build.

The blue that speaks.
The blue that sings .
The blue that sprouts.

Remember the Columbines!
