We Did Not Go Gentle

When it is all over
I will shout so all can hear.

“We put up a great fight, didn’t we?
We didn’t just sit back and cower with fear,
We didn’t just sit back and curse this thief
As he quietly stole into our lives."

This final poem in our series of posts to bring attention to National Alzheimer's Awareness and National Family Caregivers' Month is from Mosaic Moon. Author Frances Kakugawa continues her imagery of Alzheimer's as a thief, one to be fought against bravely, and with dignity.

In addition to the graphic posted below, we created a video to go along with Frances' reading of this poem at a presentation for the Hawaii Child & Family Services organization. To see more videos for Frances' readings, visit our YouTube channel or her blog.
