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 don’t 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?

PREACH IT MAN!!!  So many times i've said and wrote about this kind of stuff.  It's pathetic the way our society is. And noone wants to admit it (that is to say people of "authority") because that means our country isn't the great thing we wanna belive it is,  "land of the free and home of the brave"  it's more like "land of the dead and home of the man with the biggest gun".  

This is true, they throw the idea of God out of school and government......what did they think was going to happen?  Narrow minded idiots are going to be the death of us all.  

 "If there is anything the nonconformist hates worse than a conformist it's another nonconformist who doesn't conform to the prevailing standards of nonconformity."

Don't look... you might see.
Don't listen... you might hear.
Don't think... you might learn.
Don't walk... you might stumble.
Don't run... you might fall.
Don't make a decision... you might be wrong.
Don't might die.

don't mean to pick on Salooma but he points out the precise problem with society. "oh we got a problem, i didn't know that"  the thoughts of 99.9% of the population.  and the great when/who is going to change it.  Hello, noone's going to cause everyone thinks like that.  and as always, great thought but who cares, we enjoy destorying outselves.  
To those who bother to recognize these things, it's pathetic we have to live like this.  It's not the way it should be even though everyone thinks it's the greatest thing in the world.  My thought for the us "we're not a free nation, far from it, we're merely a privilaged nation" which is havin' it's privilages takin' away by stupidity

  "is not only he who speaks contrary to what he knows who lies, but even more he who speaks contrary to what he does not know. And thus you speak of yourselves in your dealings with others and deceive your neighbour with yourselves."

Enigmatic: I know we have a problem and it's obvious that we do, but you know what, they pound it into your skull that your in the best nation in the world where ever you go and that you should feel privilaged and sooner or later you're blinded by your own problems. You know what are problem's the fact that this nation wants so much power and control that's the problem. They're worried about solving all the international affairs that they forget the people living right at home. And I'm pretty sure outside of the's a lot safer. Look at Canada for God's don't hear about school shootings and crimes as much as you do here. The problem goes back to the way everyone was made to believe. The way most people could care less. The way all teenagers think about moving out when they're 18 and buying cars. That's about it. It's not that people don't listen. It's that they could care less. But then again I'm more of an outsider looking in.
