Cold Dead Hands

Mother don't hear the birds sing Eyes filled with tears death brings Babies massacred attending school At the hands of a deranged drool Assault guns increase the killing rate Inaction by congress sealed their fate Mother cry out in vain No one can feel their pain Guns built for war Available at the local store Adult just turn away No one will have to pay The NRA said my cold dead hand Mother children now take that stand

A very controversial topic. People pull the triggers. What needs to be done is for people in authority to be aware of what is going in with the young people at school so that help can be given to those who need it. That is a big responsibility for those who teach and work with young people but we all need to sit up and take notice. Sara
