Where is the Love

Updated on April 9, 2008

What the world is doing

I have thought long and hard about this hub that I am writing. I do not know how many people in the world have heard the song WHERE IS THE LOVE by the Black-eyed Peas. The song is so well sang and if you listen to the song closely it pretty much sums up what is happening in the world. I have listened to many songs about peace and war but this is a song that does not say it is ok to shoot children or use poisons on people. The song title says it all. In the past five years there has been nothing but bad news on the TV and the people who have gone to war to help are doing it in vain. I see that even in Canada and The US there are people who will go to any lenghths to cause harm to others it is not just in other countries but in our own back yards. This is just a list of groups that feel it is ok to cause harm and teach our children that it is ok to be racist towards others.

1) KKK 2) Governments 3) Schools allowing children to bully 4) Parents who just are afraid to speak up 5) Gangs on our city streets these are just some groups that allow this to happen.

I am a parent and I have always taught my children that skin color is only skin color. I have explained to my children that all people should be treated equal and that bullying is not right. I just find that with everything that is going on in the world that our governments send our friends and family to another country that should have been left well enough alone and they should have been dealing with the drug dealers and criminals instead. Since this war has started I have noticed a rise in drug abuse and people killing people here in Canada and the US. Just last week a Father of 3 children killed his children while the mom was out shopping. This is sad because those children had not lived their lives and now will never get to finish their lives. This is why I had to think hard about how I was going to write this hub.

What happend to the love in the world, What happend to humanity?

How can we sit back and allow people to poullute the planet and our children's lungs. How can we sit back and allow people to kill eachother. I have decided to say something now instead of sitting back and being silence. They say a person can change the world so maybe I can help make the world a better place even if it is just a small artical.
