LEST WE FOR­GET

Cockburn Gazette - - OPINION -

THE def­i­ni­tion of peace:

I see cities with hap­pi­ness. I hear no bombs or gun­fire. I see poppy fields white – no more red. I hear noth­ing but si­lence. In­stead of watch­ing bombs hit­ting is­lands I watch the sun go down. In­stead of hear­ing screams I hear laugh­ter.

In­stead of de­stroy­ing build­ings I see us mak­ing them bet­ter.

In­stead of de­stroy­ing life I see us mak­ing it bet­ter.

Now let us all hold hands and cel­e­brate our beau­ti­ful world.

I see this hap­pen­ing ever so soon.

Lets also talk and com­mem­o­rate the sol­diers who have died, while all they ever wanted as peace.

Lest we for­get.
