that will surely touch your heart.
Each day I watch the evening news
My heart aches to hear all the blues
People shot down in their prime
The young, the old committing a crime
Little kids abandoned, just thrown away
Soldiers being killed every day
I wonder where it all went wrong
Just when did evil come along
I cry because I feel the pain
Of each life taken away in vain
God doesn't want us to hate each other
He commanded us to love one another
