Peace

I come to all of you today, not as a fourteen year old teenager, neither do I step to you as an American, but as a child of God.

I have tears in my eyes and knifes through my heart.  My soul weeps and my heart pleads for the mercy of my brothers and sisters.  The ones who carry careless thoughts and heartless souls.

         Can you tell me why you have so much hate in your heart? It is because you donít believe in the power of Love, God himself?  Or are your blind in which you refuse to see what is being done?

Why do you teach your brothers to kill? It is because you love and take more pride in you country than you do us?

And why do you judge in groups instead of by individual souls. It because that is how you see us, in groups.  By our country, by our culture, and by our color?

Can you tell me the difference between human beings living on a mass of land and human beings living on a mass of land?  No, there is no difference.  So tell me how it is so much different when those masses of land are called America and Europe or China. You are blinded by a name.

There are innocent souls that are lost and punished on the account of your selfish acts.  We hear on the radio, television and in the newspaper, sometimes we even hear first hand on the phone, that the one ones we loved so dear will never come home again.
  
Why is it that " We the people" hold such a knowledge to create the computer technology we have today, the running water, the light bulb, weapons to kill, and even made man fly but we can not create a thing that takes nothing but Love.  Peace.

I can ask you many questions in which I already conceal the answer but why is it the only question I can not answer, neither can you?

Rhonda, for a fourteen year old, you seem very mature and certainly bring pause in my thinking about what is really important in this world.  We live in a "fast everything" world where money, status, and having is more important than people.  Where is all this heading? (rhetorical question)
Good writing!

You are right, Rhonda, and you remind me that I must also keep reminding all of us of these truths . . . until the day when we all really understand them!  And follow them!!!
