Whenever tragedy strikes
people cry
people pray
people give condolences

What good does this do?
Does this really help?

If we want to remember the dead
If we want to pay our respects
If we want to honor their memory

Let’s do something!
Let’s take some action!
Let’s have an effect!

Whenever tragedy strikes
people just sit there and argue
Then they do nothing at all!

The only way to truly honor the dead
is to do something to ensure that it never happens again!
Anything else is just a waste of time and ultimately a waste of life!
