In the past year alone, we've had scores of violent shootings, with the most recent senseless killing of twenty elementary school children. More and more individuals are resorting to violent behavior, leaving the world to wonder...WHY? This song was created to send a special message to people all over the world. We can't continue all this violence. We need to come together as a society to help break this cycle of killing, promote respect for human life, and let the caring begin.
