The Message Of Love

We must stop giving hate any platform at all. There are a lot of good people doing great things in the world. They should get the platform. They should be the news story everyday. Then good can spread and inspire others with a message of compassion, peace, and love, and become more contagious, more acceptable. It is the right choice.Namaste

Just tending to each other

A father, a son, a daughter,

And a mother

Just living their lives

Their parents and the kids

Their husbands and their wives

Who wanted change

Only for the better

Then things got strange

Not what anyone wanted


Not what anyone wanted

Brought to ruin

Praying for peace

That it comes real soon


Where can anyone go?

To find peace

To find love

Just to survive

And feel at home

Innocent people

Innocent lives shattered

For someone else’s game


The world cries for you
Just want

To go to the market and eat

Hang with friends

But it seems

Like this hell on earth

Can’t ever be beat
You pray to God

For this to end

Hoping that someone

Will come and help

Waiting for the day to get quiet

Hear a bird sing

Will the children ever sing again?

Will we ever hear them playing and laughing?

Will your heart heal again?

When this is over?

When will this end?
Will the sounds of screams,

Will the sounds of cries,

Ever go away?

We pray for peace

We know it’ll come someday

And for Syria

We all hope it’s today

Such a sweet, sweet thing

The sweetest of the fruits

Such an easy thing

Right now, so hard to find

Waiting at the window

Waiting for a glimpse

Of peace

Waiting for peace.

An Open Letter To Donald Trump Regarding His Thanksgiving Day Message

Dear President Elect Trump, 
Thank you for the professional and mature tone of your Thanksgiving message.

I would be most thankful to you if you would stop Tweeting and complaining about Mr Alec Baldwin and Saturday Night Live and instead Tweet about your outrage in regards to what is happening in North Dakota with our Native American Indians.

I would also be most thankful and appreciative if you would stop Tweeting about you versus the New York Times, and instead Tweet about your outrage over the fact that the citizens of Flint Michigan still do not have safe drinking water.

And I would be most thankful if you wouldn’t Tweet about the play Hamilton, and would instead Tweet about tolerance in this country and how you are outraged and against the hate groups that support you.

Maybe I’d be more thankful if you didn’t Tweet insults at others and complain about the press and liable laws, and realize you have freedom of speech even when you say asinine and outrageous things.

When you do those things, I think we can start to heal and come together. Then I would be more thankful towards you in at least knowing you have some maturity and that you just don’t care about your personal wealth and prosperity over a country of hard working Americans that have desires and dreams as well, but feels they have no voices at all in Washington, and while you use your voice to insult others not like you, and your petty complaints that you aren’t getting a fair deal.

Maybe I’d be thankful if you realized all the advantages that you have had in your life, the advantages you have taken, the opportunities you have both taken and been given, that others haven’t.

Seems to me that you have more things to be thankful for than most of us, sir.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family Mr. Trump.
