Genocide

The systematic and widespread extermination or attempted extermination of an entire national, racial, religious, or ethnic group.

This is Genocide but what confuses me is that many a time,i have heard about people that committed acts of Genocide,these people were always arrested and charged. They are tried in the UN war crime tribunal.

They don't show us this.

I have a dream

We have so much in common
I have always believed in mankind
I have always dreamed of a free world
I have always asked why the boarders

Why the divisions among us
Is it the will of God for mankind
Why can't we dwell in unity
Jane,rise and strike the blow

I have a dream

Strike down the racial walls
Strike down the tribal walls
Strike down the ungodly men
Strike down the mountain of hatred

Will you answer this call with deed
Many are called but few are chosen

I have seen the best in you
I have heard your plight as well
I have come to believe in you
I have found a lead to follow

Let us join hands together
Let us discredit racism and tribalism
Let us feed the world with love
I have a dream

There is an empty land surrounded by flowers
It can take a capacity of a million mankind
May God grant me the strength to pursue my dream
We are the world.

I have a dream of unity and equality.

I believe in Justice and Equity

I believe that any crime against humanity is vanity

I have a dream that Justice will prevail

Let us feed the world with love as long as i live and you live

Why will your ambition be to wipe us out

Were you there when God created man and woman

I have a dream.

Who is the perpetrator and who is the victim?

War is never a solution and never an option for stability so what are we fighting for?

You are the perpetrator, you are the one who gave the order to wipe us out,the President,Minister,the man in charge is the perpetrator. The masses are always the victims, the children,helpless men and women.

It happened in Nazi, Angola,Rawanda,Biafra,Liberia,Siera Lone,Cambodia, South Africa,Poland,Argentina.Iraq. (To list but few)

Why does the world and its leaders frown at a part of Genocide and smile to a part?


This is where i am confused

This is what confuses me

Does Genocide have class

Some commit and go free

The selected ones suffer

Is war an option for solution

Isn't it an act of genocide to kill civilians

Is blocking aid a kind of war strategy

What is really Genocide

Frowned at (To list but few)

Augusto Pinochet

Adolf Hitler

Idi Amin

Charles Taylor

Juvenal Habyarimana

Slobodan Milosevic

Saddam Hussein


Frowning at (To list but this)

Omar Hassan al-Bashir


Smiling at (To list but these)

George Bush (Jnr)

General Yakubu Gowon


Those who face this Genocide charges are selected, if not what is Yakubu Gowon still doing in the street?His atrocities is one hundred percent worst than what Charles Taylor is falsely accused of.We all know about International Policy,it was that same policy which made Hussein an enemy.Charles Taylor was frowned at and Yakubu Gowon smiled at. But this is not the way out.

War is not an option

War is never a policy

War is full of atrocities

You can't feed me and shoot my brothers that is why i have made this choice. I have decided from now on to build beside you.It is now you and me.


Victims of Genocide

You and me.

Why do we have to quarrel
Why do we misunderstand each other
Why can't you see the good in me
Why can't you allow me see the best in you
Why can't we live in one accord
You and me

Do we have to fight to show our strength
Do we have to struggle to speak before each other
Do we have to show the world that we are different
Do we have to cry and blame each other
Do we have to afflict pains on our next of kins
You and me

I have decided to transform my garbage
I have decided to build next to you
I have decided to speak for you
I have decided to walk holding your hand
I have decided to put you first
You and me

Will you be there if i call for you
Will you fill my cup when i taste
Will you see your hero in me
Will you smile to make me smile
Will you cultivate your flower to make me beautiful
You and me

It is time, so let us be friends and love each other because we don't have to fight to show our strength,the beauty in you is the strength in me and the joy in you is my reason to smile,giving me your humble and friendly hand means a lot to my loved ones because the true essence of you and me as God intended lies on your understanding of who i am because i know that you are an instrument of peace,love and respect.Your genuine sincerity has opened my heart so i will never manipulate to close yours.

i love this, and i thank you for writing it. i have felt this way for most of my life. i was taught to love my neighbor when i was young, and live by the golden rule, but when we get older, they say put away childish things and join the world and make war on our neighbors. i don't like the way the world is today. neighbors hating each other, sisters and brothers fighting each other. children against parents, etc...why can we not learn to live together in peace and harmony, why can we not learn to love one another as we were intended to do when we were put on this earth? i accept your hand as a friend. maybe with this one step, if others dare to take it as well, one person at a time, we can change the world. thank you. kgthekj

I can't understand Rossi. I just don't want to live in a world where we cannot love each other and help each other prosper.

Every country should proclaim the GOLDEN RULE as the LAW OF THE LAND!

The mascot and symbol of every country should be the DOVE- not any animal or bird of prey.

Bro Micky...They are out there thinking just about their fat bellies but they don't know the hour.(Bob's word).It is so painful how distrust,unjust,hate,greed,lies,betrayal and atomic energy has become the world motto.

But he will never fail us.Our god liveth.Thanks bro for coming over,missed u.
