Mankind's Greatest Failure


human failures...
war, poverty, hunger,
inequality, injustice,
enslavement, loss.....

and war leads to all of these.

greed, power, abuse,
apathy, fear, lies....
all cause war!

inability to communicate,
prejudice, righteous fervor...
allow wars to continue...

war!
mankind's greatest failure!
