“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men. – Frederick Douglass

Violence is not new to the human race.

It’s as ancient as the dinosaurs and apes

And while we struggle daily to keep the peace

media rants with killings and kept us unease

the exposure of youth to televised abused

drug addiction, murder, stealing, malice infused

are we not alarmed at this ominous trend

we have to act now or do nothing and regret at the end

Every child’s eye is vulnerable

so we need to be careful and responsible

before we speak, click and act

we have to think of its consequence and impact.
