Kate pens poem about re­cent shoot­ings

Hindustan Times (Patna) - Live - - Entertainment -

Ac­tor Kate Hud­son (left) wrote a poem ex­press­ing her de­sire for change af­ter the fa­tal shoot­ings of Ster­ling and Castile and the killings of po­lice of­fi­cers in Dallas. Many celebs voiced out mes­sages of peace and har­mony af­ter the in­ci­dents. The 37-year-old ac­tor took to In­sta­gram to share the poem where she specif­i­cally noted Ster­ling, Castile, Or­lando’s Pulse night­club mas­sacre, and the Dallas shoot­ings. “Last few months have brought much sad­ness. From Al­ton Ster­ling, Phi­lando Castile, Or­lando shoot­ing, Dallas, to ter­ror­ist at­tacks of Bangladesh, Is­tan­bul, Bagh­dad and So­ma­lia, ev­ery­day there is vi­o­lence. It be­comes over­whelm­ing that there could be such ha­tred and sense­less killing. When I can’t make sense of things, I start to write. I don’t usu­ally share my writ­ing but I felt a de­sire to put this out there,” she wrote. The poem, link­ing the tragedies with a bul­let, reads, “When the sil­ver drops who wins / Shot in the dark / Why, We can’t let fear rule / For then we are too re­spon­si­ble for a world so cruel / Fear is who takes the shot in the dark / And we must stop sit­ting back and watch­ing this sil­ver drop.”
