How many, How much, It all depends on Us

How many children will die in school shootings?
Depends on if we try to stop them.
How many teens will commit suicide?
Depends on if we try to understand.
How many kids will go to college?
Depends on if we try to help them. 
How many people will overdose on drugs?
Depends on if we start to limit them.
How many families will be separated?
Depends on if we start to care.
How many women will get raped?
Depends on if we start to listen.
How many ice caps will melt?
Depends on if we make a change.
How many black people will be shot and killed?
Depends on if we take a stand.

How much stronger will the hatred grow?
How much longer will the people suffer?

How much more will it take
To make the people see
That the world is full of problems
And the solution starts with “We”

Written in the style of “How many, How much” by Shel Silverstein
