There are riots, copycat riots and instances of unrest all over England. Let's just hope and pray they don't spread to the rest of the UK. T_T
I'm glad that there are lots of people out there praying for the situation and for the people involved, picking up brooms and riot shields (as tea trays) to clean up the mess that has been made, and truly, we can see rays of hope in these situations. But for those whose livelihoods have been destroyed...... and for those whose lives have been lost (one so far, but the situation is still volatile)...
I have an idea, insignificant though it may be.
What if we spoke to the hearts of these people?
We all love songs, don't we? We all have come across songs about causes, haven't we? So too, do I want to sing about how futile it is to continue with the violence that is going on here in Britain. I want to sing something along the lines of 'Please, let us mend this broken land'.
I'm not a good lyricist, but I can come up with a tune. At the moment I've only got incomplete backing music. And I know that compared to the many other things that people do, this seems like nothing. But if it touches the hearts of at least some young people, if not all, that'll be a mission accomplished.
Please, do talk to me about this starting 22 August 2011 (I'll be away starting the 15th, but I'll be back on the 22nd). It doesn't matter if the situation has calmed down or if it's gone worse - the impression made on Britain is lasting, and the people who have been through it would still be there to tell us their horror stories. We've got to reach out to them.
I've set up a forum post here (http://www.newgrounds.com/bbs/topic/1 265929) - please, do check it out in due time and let me know what you think. I'll be glad and grateful if I find at least a few people willing to stand by me on this one.
