Bulletproof Backpacks and Back-to-School Fear

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Posted: August 17, 2019

What has become of our world?…



First Coast News

Bulletproof backpacks?
On back-to-school lists?
My God, what's become of our world?
Our young pint-size scholars
we send off to class
must be mindful of evil unfurled.

Their innocence stolen.
Their Paradise lost.
Their freedom from fear is long gone.
The risk of a shooter
requires they drill
to rehearse what to do if there's one.

Enough of this madness!
Can't something be done?
Our children (at risk) are at stake.
It's time we remembered
what God's Word declares.
Our need for revival is great!
