The life of a child,
Should be something that’s treasured.
Treasured like a diamond,
Loved like a diamond.
Would you throw out a diamond?
Of course not.
It’s too valuable,
Too precious.
Unique in its own way.
So why throw out a child?
Have it killed because you don’t want it?
Just because it’s not formed any human characteristics,
And you think it’s nothing,
You’re killing a soul,
Ruining a life.
Would you smash a diamond?
No, you wouldn’t.
You’d care for it.
Hold it to you closely.
Make sure no one laid a finger on it.
If you’re ever thinking about ruining a child’s life,
Compare it to a diamond,
Just for a second.
See what you get out of that.
It’s worth the thought.

"Can't get no more free randy!"

Totally agree, too many people don't appreciate the life of children.

But, man, you're never going to get any truth from us. We'll tell you anything you want to hear; we lie like hell. We'll tell you that, uh, Kojak always gets the killer, or that nobody ever gets cancer at Archie Bunker's house, and no matter how much trouble the hero is in, don't worry, just look at your watch; at the end of the hour he's going to win. We'll tell you any shit you want to hear. We deal in *illusions*, man! None of it is true! But you people sit there, day after day, night after night, all ages, colors, creeds... We're all you know. You're beginning to believe the illusions we're spinning here. You're beginning to think that the tube is reality, and that your own lives are unreal. You do whatever the tube tells you! You dress like the tube, you eat like the tube, you raise your children like the tube, you even *think* like the tube! This is mass madness, you maniacs! In God's name, you people are the real thing! *WE* are the illusion! So turn off your television sets. Turn them off now. Turn them off right now. Turn them off and leave them off! Turn them off right in the middle of the sentence I'm speaking to you now! TURN THEM OFF...

i liked it, but how would you smash a diamond?
