Frank Howe A Song or Two for Colorado's Victims (102* d) Lyr Add: PUT THE GUNS AWAY 21 Apr 99


I am particularly worried about the coverage of this and other events. We feed the next crisis by focusing on the dreadful impact the sick few have had on the rest. In doing so we validate their belief in the importance of their behavior and their sick notion of notoriety through violence

I've tried to say that in the lines below

PUT THE GUNS AWAY

When our children turn to violence
What lessons can they know?
When our children die in classrooms
Where can they safely go?

Which parents need our solace?
Which parents warrant blame?
When our children turn to violence
We share it all the same

Those sad few who use weapons
To seek revenge or twisted fame
Are but pathetic remnants
Of a spirit with no flame

We will not endorse their sickness
With relivings of that day
We will love and heal our children
And put the guns away
