Ball of Confusion

I woke up with the words to Ball of Confusion in my head.  It was sung by the Temptations in the 1960's but it could have been written yesterday.  We have to join together, find our own unique qualities, put them into action and pray.  Not just to God, but to Allah, Buddha, and the universe as a whole.

Our civilization is in turmoil all over the world.  We can only bring peace to the world if we bring peace to ourselves.  We must look at every child as our own child.  We must take care of our elderly, take care of our veterans, take care of our neighbors, take care of everyone.  We must band together bringing peace to our crazy world or we will perish.

People don't know how to think for themselves anymore.  If you look around so many people spout beliefs that aren't even theirs.  They talk about all this nonsense while children are being abducted,  children are going hungry, our education system has become a vehicle for only certain messages being sent to our kids, leave no child behind has left our children behind  learning the same beliefs just to pass a test.  The children are our future people. 

We are so confused about what direction the country should go in that we take all these different roads that lead to nowhere.  Listen to the leader that has a solution for our kids, that's the one you should listen to.   Doesn't matter what party he is in, but if you hear someone out there on the campaign trail saying they should combine the department of education with the department of energy, that probably isn't the leader you should vote for.  What does oil from Saudi Arabia have to do with our children here?  Our children have to learn about history so they don't repeat it.  They need to learn about God and Jesus and Buddha and Mohammed so they have an understanding of how the world works and what children of other countries believe.

Whether you believe in global warming or not it doesn't really matter, vote for someone who wants to make sure that every child has clean water to drink and food to eat that isn't poisoned with insecticides or filled with dangerous chemicals instead of nutritious ingredients.  Worry about the natural disasters that are happening daily and how they affect the children who live there.  We hear about the natural disasters we collect money, we try to help and then we move on to the next  story, we collect money, we try to help and we move on to the next story.   It's a never ending cycle of disaster and forgetfullness.  But remember people, there are children living in that forgotten place.

If you don't want to think about children in Syria, think about your own child.  Think about the leadership that looks for solutions not bombs.  If this planet is going to survive, think of your own child.  Put your child in the shoes of another and see if that doesn't motivate you to do something good for a kid suffering somewhere else in the world.  That's the answer.  Treat others the way you want them to treat you.  Bless the beasts and the children.  Find your heart and open it wide and send love to everyone that is suffering.   Close your eyes, find a quiet place and say to whatever you believe in please send this child love.  Please send our children love.  Please.
