 INTRODUCTORY POEM

CHILDREN ARE STARS OF PEACE

  Ada Aharoni

Dear Children, you were born with loving hearts

And in them star-seeds of peace

You are the future, you are life,

You do not want to die in wars

Like some of your fathers and mothers

 

Smart children, armed

With smart-phones and computers

You will shoot your peace messages

All over the Middle East

All over our global village

 

Your rapid fingers will bring us

What we failed to bring you –

A world where not one gun is fired

A world where each child

Is a twinkling star of Peace

Well-fed and smiling at life.
