As Rick Healey and his wife toured the kindergarten class where their 5-year-old girl will go to school next fall, they came across a poem that stopped them in their tracks.
The lyrics are plastered on a white piece of paper in large, colorful markers in Ms. Kim's class at Arthur D. Healey School in Somerville, Massachusetts.
"I recognize the necessity of it, I know why it's necessary, but it upsets me and disgusts me that it is necessary," Healey said.
His wife, Georgy Cohen, posted a photo of the poem and tweeted: "This should not be hanging in my soon-to-be kindergartner's classroom."
Healey said reading the poem reminded him of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School -- his alma mater and the target of a February 14 shooting that left 17 dead and several others wounded.
