Default Dedicated to Virginia Tech Victims

Gun Laws

The gun laws didn't save me
As terror came that day
A discontented student
Went on a killing spree

He hated our society
He had a grudge against the world
He raved and he ranted
And shot his guns empty

In his own deluded mind
He saw himself as a hero
So the gun laws didn't stop him
They never stop his kind.

Thanks for sharing that Ilona. I think that putting feelings into words does help sometimes.

I just wish ther was more I could do to help the Va. Tach. students, there is a banner at the mall for people to sign and I'm planning on taking Kibbie there and signing it. Kibbie is were the orange and moroon colors today. It was request that people were the Hookie colors to day in Virginia. I'm not sure about the rest of the country. I have seen alot of orange and maroon today. One store was even selling Tech shirts for just 5$ so more people could afford to have them.
