In the deserts of Africa a man is dying
And in the plains a woman is bleeding
In the sea pirates are hijacking ships
As I write this poem a child is dying
He is infected with cholera in Zimbabwe
he is paying the price of a political deadlock
Apart from praying whatelse can we do?

Abdi-Noor, your question is a question for the ages my friend -- life has never been fair to all of the peoples of the world -- my only answer to your question of immense consequence, is for all of us to pray -- and remain vigilant with our protests to the leaders of the world -- we must not relent -- I see no quick solutions to the suffering of peoples all over the world at this moment -- greed and inhumanity are at unprecedented levels -- let us send our message for peace, hope and love as frequently as we can -- to attempt to touch every living person -- peace and love to you great emissary for world peace - JMW

I saw the world throgh the eyes of a nineteen years old soldier, I thought then that the world had become mad, but I didn't knew that the lunacy wasn't to ended in 1945, it continued to grow until today, has an old man I can see that the world not only is crazy, but also much perverted.

Oh Abdi-Noor I wish I had the answers you seek. I have them in my prayers but your right, it doesn't seem enough. Why isn't the world responding. I see this nightmare on the news all the time. Have we become so hardend that we can no longer see pain. God BLess you my friend. Love and hugs, Bonnie
