Teach your children peace

Two articles, one very short, one not so much, describing the dichotomy I feel.

"Sunlit ray of Hope" by Jerry E Smith, 3/23/15

No matter how dark and dismal it may seem,
there will always be a ray of sunlit hope
shining through.
Jerry E Smith, 3/23/15

"No one to hide them, let it be done" by Jerry E Smith 11/13/15

Is this what we are destined for? Is anarchy, violence, intolerance going
To be our reality? Are we going to allow a few fanatics to impose their
Vision of how things should be on the rest of us? Sure, love will bring
The light to a dark world, but love won’t stop religious fanaticism.
I don’t know what the answer is, but I do know that we cannot
Simply lie down in the face of tyranny. Of course, teach peace
To your children, and keep it dear within you, BUT, there
Comes a time when each one of us must make a choice;
To stand by and let gangs, drug dealers, mafia or yes,
Religious fanatics steal our freedoms, steal our life.
These men and women have families, families
Who know who they are and what they are
Doing. If THEY were to stand up for what
Is right, then all the gangs, all the drug
Dealers and Jihadis would find that
They no longer have a home, no
Foundation from which to cast
This darkness out into the
World. No Mothers, no
Sisters, no Brothers.
No one to hide
Them. Let it
Be done.
Jerry E Smith 11/13/15

Thank you Susan Hauck and you too brendamarie, I appreciate it. I do spend quite a bit of effort to find a good image to go with and/or express what I am trying to say in my writings.
