Be a light for Hailey

By Rachel A. Abbey | Feb 27, 2014

To the editor:

Shine a light above your porch

Light a candle in your heart

Be the brightness in the darkness

For the Haileys make this start


Let love beam within your souls

May your eyes be opened wide

For the sake of little ones

Let awareness be your guide


Enbrace the Haileys post and present

Don’t be afraid to cry

Vulnerability creates bravery

In the midst of the question “why?”


Bravery to beat the odds

Bravery to fight!

Until no more Haileys are

Found murdered in the night


– Rachel A. Abbey, Fairfield


(Editor’s note: “Hailey” refers to Hailey Owens, a 10-year-old girl from Springfield, Mo. believed to be abducted and murdered earlier this month)
