If we are such a great civilization then 
why is there a lack of money ?

As we sit down and watch TV 
Others die starvation and poverty

as we drink clean water from a tap
Others drink dirty water thats slowly
killing there heart 

As we get up and go to the shop
Others walk seventy eight miles
and come back dead from the 
skin boiling heat

As we go to the fridge and there
is plenty of food 
Others kill precious animals in 
order to survive 

As we go to sleep in our comfortable
secure beds 
Others fear for there lives and most of the 
time the never wake up

    It's a wretched Truth, Elton! Thanks for sharing such a well written and honest piece.

    Hi. So many only pay lip service to the wants of a large proportion of the world. Well written, Eamon

    Hi Elton.This is a skilful and if I might add enjoyable piece about something that is undeniably true.My heart goes out to all suffering and injustice everywhere.Irealise there must be practical measures put in place.But I do believe that love is the motivator and one day will conquer all.Thank you for making me think and appreciate a little more what I have.Also thank you for your own comments to myself.luv June

    100% correct , Elton . And we think that we are badly-off , here . It may not be Paradise , but we all somehow , get by . But then again , there is a major budget coming down the track ....!!!

    The world economy based only on humanity mind concepts and not on Heart precept will, unfortunatly, alway be that way,Elton! We must learn to live of the love of our source. Agape, Moses
