Who built the schools?
Why do we need a stage?
How many went to war?
Where are the gardens?
Why not enough roses for everyone?
Do we improvise or repeat each plan?
Who remembers the original theme?
Who met respect?
Where are the horses, the hard workers?
Have you bumped into peace lately?
Are there enough baseballs to win?
Is compassion around the corner?
Who planted the sycamores?
How do we kick goals at the same time?
Did we learn civil debate in civics?
When did we carry integrity in our back pocket?
Who will finish the puzzle?
