In These Times
Now more than ever, the
world needs all of us to pay attention.
The rain forests vanishing, caught between poverty and greed.
The continent of Africa, awash with war and disease.
Here in America, human rights crumble under the threat of terrorism.
Now more than ever, we
need laughter not tears.
Songs not screams. Hope not despair.
Now we need to put aside history that perpetuates war.
Now we must save our tomorrows by honoring today.
Now more than ever.
