How Many Times Must a Child Fall Down?

Heaven must have needed angels today.....Yet another school shooting. This was written for Columbine but seems to appropriate once again for Minnesota.
How many times,
Must a child fall down,
Forcibly shot to the ground?
And how many children,
Shall lose their young lives,
Because somebodyís day just went wrong?
You stepped in the way,
Passing on your day,
It wasnít you,
He was angry at a friend.
Now time stands still,
And we pray upon the hill,
We miss you and wish you hadnít gone,
How many teachers,
Will stand up and take,
bullets meant for the dead?
And how many parents,
Will be forced to weep,
From the bullets,
That rang through their heads?
And how many times,
Must I write a new song,
Longing for just a little peace?
No matter what I say,
No matter what I do,
Always it brings me back to you.
I miss you and wish you didnít fall,
I love you,
Thatís why I write this song.
Youíd smiled at me that day,
And said Iíll be home right away.
Then the bullets,
Rang out through the halls.
You never came home after all.
The policeman he said,
Even though you are now dead,
Youíd hung on as long as you could.
You said youíd stepped in his way, Passing on your day,
It wasnít you,
He was angry at a friend.
And you love us,
And wished you hadnít gone,
You love us and wished you didnít fall.
Please tell me Lord, how can a day Ö go so wrong?
