Below is a poem written by my niece, which I found quite powerful and thought-provoking.

What Is This World Coming To?
By Lisa Mounts McGrath

Knives and guns are no way to live,
Friendship and love everyone should give,
Drive-by shootings killing innocent ones,
With no remorse for what they have done,
WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO?
\Pimps and hookers on every street,
Officers dying on their regular beats,
Drug dealers handing out over-doses,
Parents out buying funeral roses,
WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO?
\Parents afraid to take their children to school,
Murder and rapes in our public pools,
Kids out doing senseless crimes,
While homeless beg for nickles and dimes,
WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TO?
\Make it a better world to live in,
By giving up the crimes and sins,
making friends is the way to go,
Maybe then our nations love will grow,
AND THAT IS WHAT THE WORLD SHOULD BE COMING TO!
