Two Hundred and Fifteen

A number like 215 can be hard to fully grasp, fully appreciate. Forty-three quintets. Almost eighteen dozens.

215 children is even harder to fathom.

215 curious minds. 430 frightened eyes. 2,150 fingers grasping for help.

215 futures destroyed. And we will never know how many children, how many grandchildren, how many great-grandchildren might have been but never could.
