a world inhabited by people
whose characters are defined by love
kindness and respect for each other.
One in which all people can live together
in harmony and peace.
I envision a world where people cherish trust
dignity for all and have faith in each other
one where all lives count
no matter of what color,race,gender or nationality,
where guns are replaced by hugs and acceptance
a world we can call our home,
one in which our children are nestled and raised
not by the fear of uncertainty but rather
by the assurance of a safe future.
I envision a world where egoism and hate
are supplanted by goodness and generosity,
a world where a helping hand takes the place
of a shooting one,
one in which laughter and joy are a substitute
for tears and sadness.
This the world for which I hope.
