• “A group of grandmothers is a tapestry. A group of toddlers, a jubilance (see also: a bewailing). A group of librarians is an enlightenment. A group of visual artists is a bioluminescence. A group of short story writers is a Flannery. A group of musicians is--a band.

    A resplendence of poets.
    A beacon of scientists.
    A raft of social workers.


    A group of first responders is a valiance. A group of peaceful protestors is a dream. A group of special education teachers is a transcendence. A group of neonatal ICU nurses is a divinity. A group of hospice workers, a grace.

    Humans in the wild, gathered and feeling good, previously an exhilaration, now: a target.

    A target of concert-goers.
    A target of movie-goers.
    A target of dancers.

    A group of schoolchildren is a target.”
