Dona Nobis Pacem

Wouldn't it be something if our children saw war as a thing of the past
instead of a horrible and ever present reality?
If they didn't have to see violent and disturbing images on the news?
Or didn't have to ask, "Where is my mommy and daddy,
don't they love me more than being a soldier?"
What would our world be like if children didn't see their
parents killed in front of them or have them die in their arms?
And if parents didn't have to see their child pick up a gun.
What if we lived in a world where governments and
persons of power didn't exploit their own people for personal gain?

I cannot stop the bullets and the bombs.
I cannot bring our soldiers home.
I cannot quell the suffering of the millions.
I cannot overthrow a corrupt
government and establish true democracy.
I feel that I cannot be heard.

Until today.

Dona Nobis Pacem.
