“I am America in the early 21st century. I am a watcher of footage. I see horrors done to children. I long to witness instead of staring at screens. I want to respond, not despair.” Graves Too Small to Be Red addresses our nation's dilemma in times of heart-breaking violence and disaster. It's poetry spun out of the awkward silence that follows a tragedy, particularly the death of a child. It pushes past our terror and hopelessness offering a response that moves grief to the protected realm of mystery. Graves Too Small to Be Red is a book of hope and healing in a troubled world, required reading for anyone who believes that small lives matter.
