And off they go,
to classrooms, to sports practices, to choir, to debate, to music – to school.
Education, one of the pillars of our society
Filled with promise
Study hard, put your best efforts forth, tomorrow will be bright
it’s gone! One burst of gunfire
by an angry school mate,
by a mentally disturbed person, by a depressed patient, by a student who’s not succeeding….
They don’t come home
It’s all gone
Tomorrow will never come
The promise of the future is extinguished.
Education, the pillar of our society has failed our youth –
we can no longer trust in the safety of the institutions.
We must do better!
