Moral Persausion Leaders, Speak Up!


The Voice of Leaders of Moral Persuasion is stilled!
Why is it so at this time of concern around the world?
Burden no longer on the total backs of political leaders;
In a world where Moral Persausion Leaders speak to millions
Across the globe, now is the time to step out from quietness;
Time for your Voice to be heard across the airways.
Standing still should not longer be a comfortable tool,
For unto you much is given, and your word a message sent
May help to create calm, peace and justice.

My word, given with the spirit of love and kindness
To all who read, who cherish life,
To all who understand that we are in one world,
And although we merry at one side of the globe,
Others are hurting; crying out for help;
Behold the virtuous spirit in your soul
Come forth and help to create peace across the globe.
Join in the call for peace, love and justice
Sit not idle by and watch crime against humanity
In our midst in this century. For this I plea.

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
