Peace – Letter to the Editor

Words Can Kill

In this day and age
When a single word
Or gesture
Can bring on unimaginable rage
We must all be careful
What we do or say
For words can kill
For words can kill

Public figures
From all walks of life
Must take extra-care
In choosing their words
Lest they dare
Their supporters to do the unthinkable
Keep in mind
That words can kill
That words can kill


Why not celebrate
Our differences?
And warmly embrace
Americans of all races
hatred shouldn’t define who we are
Do away with fear and denounce violence

Let your heart with love be filled
For words – my friends –
For words can kill.
