Another one…

November 8, 2005

There was another school shooting today. No doubt the killing will be blamed on music and games. To quote Reese Roper of Five Iron Frenzy:
“When we’re at home, everyone’s talking about it. But the thing is that they try, they try and blame it on video games. They try to blame it on bad parenting. They try to blame it on TV, violence and stuff. I think all those things are bad, but I think the real problem is that mankind is dark and without God, people do things like that.”

A New Hope
Amy’s going back to school today,
elation, jubilation streams from her face.
Did the halls smell of gunpowder still?
What made the human mind dark enough to kill?

A new hope,
where is your freedom?
A new hope,
cast off your burdens.

A darker world lies behind this one.
Cryptic it hides beneath perception.
We all saw it on that day,
stunned we stood stuttering.
What did the news say?

A new hope,
where is your freedom?
A new hope,
cast off your burdens.
A new hope,
where is your freedom?
A new hope,
here is your freedom.

Peace
fills us
by hope we steer
our dark hearts salvaged.
We live without fear…
