I'M PEACE PAL from the PLANET PALS website!

My name is Peace-pal
and I like the world calm
a place free from anger
without any harm

Let's take away conflict
put safety in it's place
a world full of freedom
for the whole human race

Be friendly, don't fight
let's laugh and let's sing
make a world that is joyful
for all living things

PEACE X PEACE COMMUNITY MEMBER ORIGINAL POEM

HEY SOLDIER MAN

by Dawn Scott (nurse, poet, amateur painter)

Hey Soldier Man look down at me,
Try not to ignore that I'm only three.

Remember the park they made you destroy,
I played there many times with my friends and my toys.

You see that school---the one over there,
I was listening to my teacher when she told me to care.

So, I promise not to be mad at you,
It's your job that makes you do what you do.

Maybe you have children and maybe they are three,
Maybe they look real simular to me.

I hope you never have to do it again,
And I hope maybe some day we can be friends.

Soldier, I know you can understand,
What it's like for a kid to live in these lands!

I need a home with shelter and love,
Both parents to raise me and God up above.

Your welcome to visit and your family too,
But, why not go home and say "How do?"

Visit my PEACE blog to access information on projects, sites, translations, tributes to PEACE heroes, and more.
Non-violence, PEACEful resistance, and lawful/acceptable forms of protest are concepts that can be developed in small children through proper training.  If internal conflict as well as nuclear war is to be avoided, then we must all do our part to educate and train young ones in the proper methods of dealing with adversity.  To respond with a resolution using PEACEful strategies  is to have GREAT COURAGE....
