Your Choice!


stop the senseless killing!
right here, right now!
murder is murder.

nothing you own or possess
is worth the price of a human life...
killing never brings peace!

the bombs you drop

the bodies you bury

in the shallow ditch your children.
only God knows the price you pay,
only you know the God you face!

every action brings either
life or death... your choice!
