The Nightmare Before Christmas

I want to take a moment and say how unbelievably sorry I am to all the families of the victims in the Connecticut shootings. It could have been any of us or any of our children. I cannot begin to understand what goes through the mind of people that murder children. They are so incredibly innocent. How can someone feel that justice is serve by killing even on of them? 😦 And of course the killer always has to kill himself before police lay hands on him. This mass shooting is literally the Nightmare Before Christmas.

To all those who passed away today..the teachers, children, mothers, fathers, principle. I dedicate this song to you.

The Band Perry

“If I Die Young”

If I die young, bury me in satin Lay me down on a, bed of roses Sink me in the river, at dawn Send me away with the words of a love song
Uh oh, uh oh
Lord make me a rainbow, I’ll shine down on my mother She’ll know I’m safe with you when she stands under my colors, oh, And life ain’t always what you think it ought to be, no Ain’t even grey, but she buries her baby
The sharp knife of a short life, well I’ve had just enough time
If I die young, bury me in satin Lay me down on a bed of roses Sink me in the river at dawn Send me away with the words of a love song
The sharp knife of a short life, well I’ve had just enough time
And I’ll be wearing white, when I come into your kingdom I’m as green as the ring on my little cold finger, I’ve never known the lovin’ of a man But it sure felt nice when he was holdin’ my hand, There’s a boy here in town, says he’ll love me forever, Who would have thought forever could be severed by
The sharp knife of a short life, well, I’ve had just enough time
So put on your best, boys, and I’ll wear my pearls What I never did is done
A penny for my thoughts, oh, no, I’ll sell ’em for a dollar They’re worth so much more after I’m a goner And maybe then you’ll hear the words I been singin’ Funny when you’re dead how people start listenin’
If I die young, bury me in satin Lay me down on a bed of roses Sink me in the river at dawn Send me away with the words of a love song
Uh oh (uh, oh) The ballad of a dove (oh, uh) Go with peace and love Gather up your tears, keep ’em in your pocket Save ’em for a time when you’re really gonna need ’em, oh
The sharp knife of a short life, well I’ve had just enough time
So put on your best, boys, and I’ll wear my pearls.
