The Broken News: in memory of those Colchester County has lost

"Our communities here are totally stunned, somehow finding a way to put their feet down, feel safe, and go on. My head can't stop shaking."

It,
all for a few moments
seems so far away,
in another community,
another province,
another country.

And then in another few moments
it is right there
in our stomachs,
our hearts,
and then down our cheeks.

It,
deserved of such a description
I will not say otherwise
other than
it has paused the tides.
