In Honor of the Children in CT: Innocent Children

Innocent children went to school one day,
Innocent children went to laugh and play.
They went to where they knew they were safe,
But that was before the monster came.

He took their lives,
And he took their hearts.
What makes a man fall apart?

Innocent children went school today,
And parents tried to let them laugh and play.
They will never come home to their loving lives.
They will never again open their eyes.

In life there are tragedies,
But never like this one.
How can a man come to this conclusion?

Innocent children went to school this day,
Twenty of them will never again laugh and play.
The monster took their beauty and life,
And made it into all this strife.

A monster is a monster,
No matter what you say.
Be sorry this had to happen today.

Innocent children went to school one day,
Innocent children went to laugh and play.
They went to where they knew they were safe,
But that was before the monster came.
