I still have the “Wall that Heals” in my mind, that I saw in Burton, OH last week. So many names on it of men and woman that died in Vietnam. We, the people, allow our elected leaders to put our children in harm’s way at times, many conflicts that should NOT have happened then and in the future.
Life’s Worth 2016-62
How foolish are the forms of life
that share the planet Earth
What sane logical reason
is in place for all the wars and strife
Who can give a decent reason
for all the dying and anguish
Why the need for battle cry’s
for the young warriors and innocents to die
Where are the ones to say ENOUGH
for the masses that have it rough
When will the bell stop tolling
for the life on the ship called Earth
How can the world’s most intelligent
creatures, give life so little worth?
Is there a reason for war? Some say yes and others no, but it is the people that cause war by letting their leaders dictate the horrors, trials and tribulations to occur. We are the reason, the people of Earth that people like the mad man in N. Korea, Putin in Russia, and hopefully NOT, the idiot here in American that does not think America is already great.
One thought on “Life’s Worth 2016-62”
it is truly scarey when you look at all the lives lost thru the ages in the name of (looking for) peace. But the count has picked up drastically in our lifetime—so many more countries with all of the gadgets, egos and whatever. Time for all to forego the electronic gizmos, etc. and work on talking to each others, boosting each others strong points, admitting our weaknesses and finding ways to lift up each other. But then that starts with you and me—-are we ready?
