Life’s Worth 2016-62

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?

 

Den Betts

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

  1. 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?
