THE PROFIT IN PEACE
A Beautiful Poem by Joe Allegro
[Board Member of “New Yorkers for a Dept of Peace”]

In pursuit of peace, my time I do spend,
Phone calls and meetings and faxes to send.
Seeking education to prepare myself for,
Seminars, panels, events and more.

Concerns of my clarity, will I speak well?
At times sadly peace, is such a hard sell.
In the creation of weapons, many are employed,
For short term gains, many are destroyed.

The long term produces global violence and fear,
No place for our children, of this I am clear.
Let us join together, and help them to cope.
Proclaim a new world, through the audacity of hope.

Every child is yours, it matters not which one,
All have the same dreams, be they daughter or son.
To love and be loved, create and give rise,
Humanity’s full potential, is far beyond the skies.

Let us plant the seeds of a world such as this,
With hope and conviction, we surely can’t miss.
Let us cause in our world, violence and fear to cease,
Such is the profit, the profit in peace.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK ... "The simple truth is that the remnants of cluster bombs become de facto land mines. They kill, maim, and wound civilians every day, even long after conflict has ended. In fact, 98 percent of cluster bomb victims are civilians. I believe use of these weapons in or near civilian areas runs counter to our values and counter to the international laws of war." Senator Diane Feinstein [CA] in The Washington Times
