A Victim of Violence

A child was the victim of bullets and violence.
He just turned fifteen and now he is dead.
His family is grieving in agonized silence.
The counselors at school are helping his friends.
What can we do to stop this madness?
Why did this person cause all this sadness?
Is it because we aren't better parents?
Did we hear him say this was all planed?
Where did this kid get all of this anger?
Was it something within that was lurking awhile?
what can we do to stop this from happening?
Who will we blame if it happens again?
How does a parent teach compassion?
I thought it was something that all of us had.
Sometimes there one that doesn't fit the pattern.
He cries out for help but is never heard.
