Let us understand The gravity of our situation. Let us understand That our only redemption Is love.Love for a small, endangered planet On which we are utterly dependent. Only love can transform us From plunderers and savages Into Earthkeepers and peacemakers. Only love can show us The integrity and rights Of all other beings. Only love can open our eyes To the truth and beauty That surround us. Only love can teach us The humility we need To live on this Earth. And only love can now save us From extinction. Mary de La Valette Poet and activist, So if you're one who has put your flag away... Remember out soldiers are still fighting each day... So take out the Red, White and Blue and fly it high... For the soldiers at war that still may die... Our patriotism should have only just begun... Do not forget who they are and what they've done.. Pray for all the man and womann who fight each day to defend this great country! And pray that we don't go to war! May the Lord bless you all!
