WHO WILL TEACH THE CHILDREN? (rated 24)


Who will teach our children?

Who will teach our children? I speak not
of the lessons of school, but those of
life, living and those of God.

Who will teach our children, that in
war no one wins and all humanity loses
a part of who we are.

Who will teach our children, that God,
morality, honesty, love and respect are
the coner stones of the civilized world.
Without them, mankind will crumble and
disappeared forever more.

Who will teach our children of compassion
for their fellow man and respect for anothers
God, or color or creed?

Who will teach our children, all these things
and more?

The answer is whispered in your love...beating
in your heart....and echoed in your soul.

Who will teach our children? ...It must be you.

And how sleep seems a goodly thing
