Rock Band Puts Out Controversial Song About A School Shooting

It has been said that great art is a reflection of society. There ia an Alternative Rock band from The United States called Teacherz. The band is made up of teachers from a low performing High School in a Major City in the U.S. Most of their songs are about teachers and students and education issues. There songs include titles like “Welcome to Our Institution”, “Grades are Due” and “Cafeteria Food”. I am going to tell you about a new song that has just come out (as of 2/21/20) worldwide. The  song i am going to tell you about puts a very big mirror up to reflect a very big problem.

The song is called “Sonny Brought A Gun To School”. It is reflecting the problem of school shootings which is a big problem in the United States. The reason it is a big problem is because the US Constitution, the document all government in the US is based on gives Americans the right to carry a gun. Sometimes Adults are the perpetrators of school shootings. many other times, however, children are the perpetrators.

A large powerful association of gun enthusiasts and Gun and ammunition manufacturers are fighting laws that would prevent school shootings. They are doing it with bribes. They are doing it with ads. They are doing it with slogans like Guns don’t kill people, people do.

The entire rock music industry is based on fantasy. Heavy Metal is based on middle age knights and folklore. Goth is based on the fantasy of the living dead. Death Metal is based on a fascination of death.  Rarely are Rock songs based on societal problems that consistently headline the news.

The thin line between fantasy and reality is blurred permanently by this little known band with their new single. Sonny Brought A Gun To School, talks about what led up to the shooting, the actual shooting and its aftermath. The song is so true to life that it’s sparking controversy throughout America and even beyond America’s borders.

Sonny Brought A Gun To School by Teacherz will be available for streaming starting on February 21st (US time). If you have Spotify or Apple music or something like that you will be able to listen to it and see if you agree that it is very true to life. That it does put a mirror up to society. That it does give one pause.

Faith in Times of Mind Numbing Tragedy

What My Faith Means To Me

Every morning when I wake up, it is faith that empowers me to get out of bed. It is faith that propels me through the day. It is faith that guides me, bobbing and weaving around numerous perils that are in my path, be they perils of my environment or perils from the destructive nuances of my own personality. My faith shows me the limitless possibilities of each day. It is faith that delivers me back home at the end of each day. It is faith that shows me what The Lord wants me to see that day and faith that teaches me the lessons that give me the insights that I have been credited with.

I cannot even imagine what the world is like for someone with no faith. It must be very scary indeed to live in a world filled with so much cruelty, destruction and death and not believe that there is a purpose, to it all. It must be difficult to live the drudgery of each day like a zombie, one day blending into the next with no distinguishable difference between them. To live a life without hope that something better is coming.

For what is faith, except a perspective on life seen through the belief that there is a purpose, there is hope, there are miracles, there is something better coming, there is a loving God. I have witnessed so many miracles in my life that I know there is a loving God behind them. God’s existence for me is unquestionable and undeniable. If Scientists declared that there was proof that God does not exist I would submit evidence to refute it. If the whole of humanity stopped believing in God and hope, I would stand like a lone candle, burning in the darkness to light the way with the light of truth. That is why, the symbol of my faith is a lone candle illuminating the darkness because all who are of faith, no matter which faith we hold, are like candles illuminating the darkness.

What Faith Has Taught Me

My God

By The Prophet of Life

My God doesn’t demand people follow orders like robots and doesn’t threaten people with eternal damnation to keep them in line because those are egotistical actions and My God isn’t egotistical.

My God doesn’t punish people for disobeying My God provides learning opportunities so that they may learn lessons and improve their behavior through a higher understanding instead of out of fear of punishment.

My God doesn’t stand silent when people’s lives seem to be falling apart, My God communicates with people through The Word, through events and through other people who deliver messages.

My God hasn’t given one group of people an exclusive on The Word. My God hasn’t reserved an eternal home for the chosen few. My God welcomes everyone who wants to get to know God better.

My God is an equal opportunity lover and loves all living beings equally no matter what form they take. All life is precious to My God and a kindness to any life form is a kindness to God. Taking the life of any life form is taking a part of God that the taker does not have the ability to restore.

My God doesn’t judge people by their race, or religion or sexual orientation or economic status because My God knows that these are things all people are born with, a starting point.   My God doesn’t look at where you start. My God looks at how you have grown beyond your starting point and what you have learned from the experience we call life.

My God doesn’t need pass judgment upon humankind because My God has given a spiritual gene to all people and an objective part of that gene allows all spirits to pass judgment upon themselves.

My God understands that humanity can only understand things given the information they can comprehend. This information is called The Word.

My God sends prophets to deliver The Word at times which parallel humanities advancements and ability to understand more. Although God remains the same, The Word is ever changing as new information is added to what humanity knows as humanity has advanced enough to understand it.

My God’s will is always done and My God always wins because My God exists in the past, present and future simultaneously. My God is the master of time and can change any outcome, at any time during the past, present or future.

My God has a master plan in which every soul has a role. My God has a mission for each and every person. My God has provided tools for each individual; to find out what their mission is.

My God is your God. My God is the same God you have been praying to no matter what your religion. If you think you know everything about God and you didn’t know some or all of these things, do you really know God?

One Small Candle

One Small Candle

VERSE 1

She lived in the middle of the city

But felt like she was living in hell

She wondered how she ended up here

And felt dread as the night fell

She felt so isolated

And scarred by broken dreams

She fell asleep serenaded by

Gunshots, moans and screams

She lit one small candle

And put it next to her window

To fight against the darkness

And let the world know

That one small candle

One soul to stand for right

One small candle

To keep away the night

VERSE 2

She felt like that small candle

As she struggled every day

To walk towards her goals while surrounded by

Those who lost their way

She was assaulted by temptations

Hammered by neglect

But kept on walking anyway

One step following the next

She lit one small candle

And put it next to her window each night

VERSE 3

This went on for years

And things got better over time

She struggled every day

And lit a candle every night

One night before turning in

She looked out and to her surprise

Saw 10,000 other candles

Drowning the darkness with their light

One small candle

Was able to conquer the night
