The road goes on forever, as the hope that fills my heart
That none will lose their life through war and from this world depart
May leaders learn from people and show passion till their end
Let differences give way to peace, and love on earth transcend

This life is not just ours to hold, itís ours to give and share
Itís not a time of take or break, of turn into disrepair
It is our time to show all man the road to peaceful end
Where harmony does sing its song and all call all their friend

This road it is a long one, of end that I canít see
Where with the steps and strides upon, I take my hope with me
And on the journey through my life on road of time and chance
I give each soul my hand of love and hope through passing glance

And though at times the rocks will fall and some may veer off way
The calling of the ones ahead will get us through the day
And we will march with vigor and with pride for all mankind
Believing that tomorrow, another friend weíll find

(big hugggssssss) That's exactly the problem I see too, it isn't that it is entirely our leaders faults that we are in a mess, but they need to learn to look to the people more and be more capable of reaching out by the understanding of love and peace and make decisions based on love for the people and not for their cabinets! (sad sigh) I am praying too such a resolution could pass soon, you have my vote, we all love you so much! You have such a beautiful heart, sweet Rick, thank you for sharing!



May love and light always shine upon you!

Love,
Noah Eaton
