    Single minded, double standard, triple threat…War!
    What is it good for? What is the purpose? Is it to awaken an unconscious
    state of defense to the surface? Pain and affliction, politics and religion…
    war is used to get the world’s attention. War of the mind can be the worst of its kind. Leaving many people emotionally blind. Bringing tears for the lives that
    have been lost. What are the benefits of war and what is the ultimate cost?
    Teary eyes that have witnessed torture and forcefully gained grief,
    fighting for the equality of those who share the same beliefs.
    Indecipherable, unacceptable, unnecessary madness, diminishing the world’s population, best described as complete sadness. Blasting on the innocent
    because your cause was worth dying for. Once you have accomplished your mission your life will be over and you won’t be among the living no more.
    You won’t be around to revel in the victory and rejoice, because fighting a lost battle was your choice. The Higher Power creates life and who are we to take it?
    We were made in His image and His mold…He’s not ready to break it.
    Stop the violence, make peace, and walk through life’s open door, make the world a better place to live in without conforming to a never-ending war.

    If only the leaders of this country felt this way...
    this piece touched me deeply...
    this day & time is so disturbing for me
    the uncertainty of consequences to come
    as a result of this great nations,
    continuous greed and arrogance...

    Feeling your work!
