I's to a We

"I's" to a "WE" If our very existence were merely a test, I guess we would rank as the worst of the best. Excelling in all of the sciences known, while seeking division from those of our own. What is the point of us being so smart if we make it a weapon that drives us apart? How different our civilization would be if we traded in all of the "I's" for a "WE" With knowledge and purpose to live as supreme, in dominion of earth and the sky and the sea. Resourcefully seeking to strengthen our force to exist on this earth for it's life giving source. We've come to the point of our technology, where people throughout the whole world should be free. Existing in peace without worry or threat because life is deemed precious and all needs are met. If we could evolve from the "I's" to a "WE", from the struggle and strife to how great life should be, common in purpose, united as one, just think of the prizes our race will have won. -Jeannie Minor

Thank you, Jacque. This one was for a really awesome crusader I met at Starbucks one day, Luke Wonderly. If you look for him on Facebook you will really understand.
