Editor, the Advocate:
To be so tolerant to those you oppose;
don’t burn bridges or doors that you close.
We must live together and must get along,
even if you’re right and the other is wrong.
To think of yourself as superior in any sort of way,
you are no better than others whatever you say.
The vibes you give off may be increasingly intense
and you might build barriers or a real tall fence.
You might become divided by people that you’ve judged
and push them away by the way you have nudged.
World peace can be obtained for the whole human race,
even with major issues that we as people all face.
It is one of the oldest proven recipes and is at our finger tips,
but not used enough and not heeded as it passes from our lips.
Respect, giving, love and caring are part of the formula that I know.
Multiplied by millions the equation is solved and allows the sum to grow.
