I cannot understand the hate
With the ungodly will
To want to hurt another person
Even to kill

I cannot understand the reason
Behind such a deed
In their heart, they have planted
An evil seed

I cannot understand Revenge
Jealousy and the want, to get even
I cannot imagine
Just what they believe in

But once again, beautiful lives
Have been taken away
Once again
Tears are shed, this day

Once again, we ask why
With aching hearts, we cry
Once again, we feel anger too
For this unspeakable thing, they do

Every man, woman and child
Has the God given right
To live life
Without fear
Not one sad tear
To always be near
The ones they love

I know, many people suffer with pain
And loss that comes with illness
Pain of growing old and frail
And the pain and loss of life
through natural disasters ....
But do you realize the number of people
That suffer from and by the hands
of another person?
Be it physical or mental pain and anguish,
even death.

Today is the 8th anniversary

Columbine High

And just in this past year 2006-2007
