Poleg nesmiselne vojne v Ukrajini nas je v preteklem tednu prizadela šokantna novica o strelskem napadu in pokolu v osnovni šoli mesta Uvalde v ameriški zvezni državi Teksas, ko je najstnik postrelil 23 nedolžnih ljudi, od tega kar 19 otrok.

»Nekateri dogodki, ki se dogajajo v svetu, se mladih lahko dotaknejo tako globoko, da o tem ne morejo prenehati razmišljati in v takih trenutkih samo pogovor ni dovolj. Takrat je nujno, da jim prisluhnemo in njihovo energijo usmerimo v dejavnosti, ki vsaj blažijo, če že ne popravljajo občutke krivice. Šestošolec naše šole, Vid Lamovšek (12 let), je samoiniciativno napisal pesem v angleškem jeziku, za katero menimo, da jo morate prebrati in po vaših komunikacijskih poteh, kolikor je v vaši moči, posredovati v Svet. Zaupamo v vašo presojo in verjamemo, da boste podprli vse »Vide«, ki jim ni vseeno,« je zapisala v spremnem dopisu k pesmi ravnateljica OŠ Tončke Čeč Katarina Pajer Povh v imenu kolektiva OŠ Tončke Čeč.

A song to the world

What about those who can’t run.

What about those who were shot. One by one.

What about those whose lives weren’t fulfilled.

What about those who were unrightfully killed.

They can’t run ’cause they died.

One by one, side by side.

They’ve been killed in an attack.

For them everything went black.

I’m spreading this word into the world today.

To make you see it’s not ok.

The only question I have is … why?

Why did he kill them? Why did he make their parents cry?

I want to fight for the lost lives … now!

But … I don’t know how.

That’s why I’m sending out this message, so

someone will see this. Someone who’ll know.

The right person with the right heart.

The right people who are brave and smart.

And I know everybody knows this is wrong …

But this has been happening for too long!

Start doing something! Start making things right!

I don’t care if you are black or white.

I really hope this song will help somehow.

Share this message with the world. Now!

Vid Lamovšek, OŠ Tončke Čeč
