The children

Children, children, children. Children running away from violence and poverty in Central America, children sent back to violence and poverty in Central America, children killed on a beach in Gaza, children hungry and unsafe on the streets of these United States, children deathly ill with cholera in South Sudan. Cry out, o stones.

I first posted this lament on Facebook about 12 hours ago, Wednesday July 16, 2014.

Oh yes, Jane. When, oh when, will they stop making war on babes and children. When will reactionary Israelis, who call for the deaths of Palestinian women as well as children, cease?

When will the children who get love is better than hate, make in harmony...if only the grown-ups--who are not grown up at all--stop and listen to the children, let them decided about peace and how to achieve it...then, peace may come.

Thank you, Jane.
