Our World - Our Children

Have you ever woken up and felt you no longer recognize the world you live in
Well think about your children they have inherited this confusion
Negativity and violence is increasing everyday and our children are at risk

I remember when I was a child how safe and loved I felt
My parents were loving, caring, giving and nurturing
Sadly today children have to grow up faster
They have to be taught how to protect themselves
No longer can parents hide their heads in the sand and pretend everything is all right

We as a society have to stand up and be counted
We have to fight for a better world for our children
The future needs to be protected

Let our voices resonate throughout the world
We must continue the fight that such great men like Martin Luther King started
In a time of racial hatred and injustice he stood up and fought for equality for all
A man of vision and wisdom that wrote such beautiful quotes as - "We must learn to live together as brothers or perish together as fools."

Through the eyes of a Child

We are the children of this world! We are all unique. We are the next generation.
Brothers and Sisters born to be free.

What do you see when you look at me? Take a good look! Am I what you hoped and prayed for?
I am your baby, your child
innocent and pure. My mind is open, my heart is free.
Please teach me the right way to live.
I depend on you for guidance.
I am born into this world free from hatred.
I dont see color, I dont see race or religion.
All I see is you!
Who am I? I am a mini version of you.
I am your gift from GOD!
See me, love me, cherish me.
Teach me to be kind, open-minded and strong.

Do you see a difference? We Don't! We are all one big family so let us live together in Peace & Love.
