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

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

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
