Price of Children’s Lives


We must ride the tide for Humanity, dig deep for sanity.
No longer can we not face reality, when the nature of life is not a fantasy.
When children are dying in buildings that they call sanctuaries.
Politicians should hear the call of parent’s near and far.
When children are dying not on the battlefield, but on school room floors,
Someone should pick up the call, with children going to school to learn-not to hide.
Where are our leaders?  Why can’t they hear the mother’s cry?

“Our kids don’t go to school to hide.”
