Angels 21.

A tribute to the children and teachers of Texas.

Sometimes the world can be scary and wild, but no parent should ever have to bury their child.

We live in a world where the devil’s fire even burns on the grounds where young boys and girls learn.

We shouldn’t murder adults, it all should stop there, but murdering little children is really not fair.

We heard the news of their deaths and it made us weep. We can’t sleep because this is a wound that cuts deep.

It’s enough to make you throw up. Sitting back thinking about those young children that will never grow up.

Future stars who will never blow up. Graduation days of which their loved ones will never get to show up.

On that fateful morning everything seemed cool when parents woke up and sent their children off to school.

They sent them to a world where they would be with their friends, unaware that they would never ever see them again.

We owe them our prayers, we owe them support. We owe our loved ones gratitude because life is so short.

We can’t forget the teachers who were inside with. They protected them from danger and then they died with them.

Hug your children tight, you may not see them again. Make sure you tell them that you love them when you meet them again.

~~Dedicated to the children and teachers who lost their lives in Texas. Even though they pass on, we will honor their future.
