America - America

"America ~ America"

America ~ America 
     My country "tis of thee
America ~ America 
     We so need Peace you see
America ~ America  
      You're the country that I love
America ~ America 
      The LORD's in tears above

America ~ America 
      To these shores come one and all
America ~ America 
      Where the dreams are standing tall
America ~ America 
      Where children laugh and play
America ~ America
      Don't let violence rule the day

America ~ America
      Things are so so out of hand
America ~ America
       Blood is covering our blessed land
America ~ America
       We cannot let the haters win
America ~ America
       Hate is such ungodly sin

America ~ America
       You say "give me your wretched and poor"
America ~ America
       Let's break down these hateful doors
America ~ America
       Diversity is thy claim
America ~ America
       Let's try loving in God's name

America ~ America
       The world's eyes are on thee
America ~ America
        It's not you nor I ~ It's "WE"
America ~ America
        Let us make a change as one
America ~ America
       With Love we shall overcome

Walter, I worked with a young lady from Hong Kong a few years ago who was in the US on a temporary work visa. She was kind and beautiful in every way. She seemed to enjoy being here but told me that people from Hong Kong were afraid to visit the US because they view it as a very violent country. It is such a shame we are seen that way from people in other parts of the world. Strong, thought provoking write.

Share your pain. Grew up in 50'Hope you enjoy the soup. Ethnicity not important here. All just poets with colourful souls. Was President Lions's club same thing. Also Toastmasters. Grew up in 50's and 60'S here in Kiwi Land. Big news if we had a murder once in two months. Now close to 1 a day. Strong communities our only hope. The Power of three. Stay free. Keep your message alive and don't give up hope. Well written. No words that blame or shame just words of peace for all. David in NZ
