Forever, For A Lifetime
I wrote this song about 6 or so months ago. It's from the POV of a kid who's childhood crush was killed in a school shooting. I tend to wonder how anyone who survives any scenario like that ever really moves on, or if they do at all. How could they? How do they cope? The sad reality is, this seems to be our reality now. When the Mandalay Bay shooting happened in Vegas, I was about 2 miles away with my family. We visited there the week before. My kid starts school for the first time in a week or so. We're excited but I'd be lying if I said there isn't an inherent fear in the back of my mind as well. I won't pretend I have all answers, but I can't help but keep asking the question, "Why aren't we doing anything to help prevent it from happening SO DAMN MUCH?"
