Why Does It Take A Tragedy For Better Laws?Over the years, we have heard of many horrific shootings in schools, shopping malls and political events. We wonder why this happens, could it be mental illness, family values, technology, lack of gun control? And now we've heard the most heartbreaking story of all, little innocent 6 year old children murdered senselessly along with the brave adults that tried to save them. I have faith that now most people will no longer tolerate this. We can't let these senseless murders go on any longer. We must protect the children from evil. Killing children goes beyond politics.
And a harlot who held a babe against her bosom said to a woman who had no children, "Speak to us of children." And the woman answered -
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Earth's tomorrow.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts.
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
Children are not meant to be insurance, nor shields from your sins.
Children are the future. God bless all the children of the world.
