The Wall of Tolerance

This is not a perfect world, we see things everyday That makes us take a second look, or makes us turn away The heart of man has turned to stone, and compassion is not found We've taken love and friendship, and beat them to the ground No longer do we hold our hopes and all our dreams so dear At any given moment, we will trade them in for fear Lets end this reign of violence, and halt these evil designs We are all in this as one human race, to that we must resign So please reach out so all of us cease the malice and the pain And maybe one day soon we'll hear sweet music in the rain So as you kneel and Pray to God, for a better life for all Ask that Peace and Tolerance be placed visible on the Wall
