LOVE at LIB

At the Life Is Beautiful Festival one week before the Vegas shooting massacre. I was so inspired I wrote a poem with this last stanza: As the final beats faded into the cool night We walked out changed, not knowing how long Until the rest of the world would find out And take the magic away... One week after to the day the magic was ripped away from all of us...
