ThoughtfulThursdays

Dear USA,

ThoughtfulThursday #3

Dear USA,

The world is watching
The same news story
Of another school shooting
In the United States

We’ve seen the story
So many times before
And wonder
When will you change

Your children are dying
And still you do nothing
We cannot understand
How you keep making the same mistake

How many more have to die
For you to realise
That weapons are not equal
To the life of a child

Fighting violence with violence
And hate with hate
Is not the solution
But the problem

Please listen to your children
Who live in fear
Every time
They go to school

I’m watching
Yet again, the same news story
Of another school shooting
In the United States

I’ve seen the story
So many times before
And wonder
When will it end?

Love,
The Netherlands

Have a nice Thursday!
