If I so loved the world, what could be said
How can I explain the sorrow and ignorance
That surrounds this generation?
How can I explain the bigotry and nationalism
Cloaked in the flag of patriotism
And a New World Order?
Have we learned nothing
Has not history taught us to question rhetoric
Does the wholesale slaughter of people not bother us any more?
Have we become so jaded
That not even death bothers us anymore
And do we not question that all opponents are now labeled terrorists?
Then I am a terrorist
A terrorist for reason, a terrorist for compassion
And a terrorist for truth!
We must open our hearts
And examine what we are being told
Read, educate ourselves and don’t trust the press!
We are all victims of our culture
And we must choose for ourselves what is real
Believe in goodness and seek it!
Believe that goodness is not in acquiescence
Do not believe that you are stupid or impotent
Do not believe that they are smarter than you!
Open up your eyes and your compassion
Become the reason that you are
And join me and become a terrorist of the heart!
