To Cowards that commit Terrorists acts.., what it is you fail to get.
RED, WHITE & BLUE..Colors we could all share
But our children all do

To Cowards
What you fail to see..the colors are "we".

Red is the color of the blood you have spilled,
That of Our children, our families our friends.

White is the color of our truth and our hearts,
The brightest of light, of candles we burn,
The brightest of stars from the sky up above .
The light that you lack in your own lives.

Blue is the color we feel to our souls,
the sorrows for all the lives you have stole.

The Colors are pure, no shades of gray,
Across our whole nation, proudly they wave.

Our flag, a symbol, of the unity we share,
In memory of those taken, for those that now hurt.
To honor our Hero's, who unselfishly give.

We are one Nation, United we stand,
We do stand brave, and we do stand strong.
We will hold those up, that you have laid down
And keep in our hearts those that are gone.

And what you have failed, to understand,
We all breath the same air,
we all bleed the same blood.

Your children and ours, will inherit this earth
They stand better chances , if all taught in peace.
Respect for each other, in each their own rights
Compassions for pains of another ones life.
To believe in themselves, and still to allow
the idea's of others, when it differs from theirs

Our one Nation, what provides us our strength,
Our beliefs in freedom, in peace and in truth.
To allow beliefs in what ever you choose.
For the rights of all peoples, no matter their creed.
Regardless of boarders or the lands they call home
This planet we live on, is not yours , nor ours,
Not to one nation does this planet belong.

We will not fight about who ever your god,
We will not fight for religious cause,
We fight in the name of our right to be free,
To put an end to injustice & cowardice ways.
That is what's said, in all books of god.
To live in peace, to do no harm.

So on behalf of your pretense of religious beliefs,
Read it again, for the part you have missed

Thou Shall not Kill, in the name of the lord.
Thou Shall not judge, leave that up to god.

All of our children, and your children too,,
Have rights to free lives in this world.
To be taught in honor not cowardice ways.

Someday soon this earth will be theirs
And, If not taught to live here in peace,
they breath the same air,
they "will" bleed the same blood.
These are the colors that all people share ,,
Not ours alone, they affect you as well.

Red is the color of the blood we all bleed
White is the color of the light that's inside
and Blue is the sadness we will all feel,
When you have caused in our worlds... a war.

A Place in the Hearts
