The mentality of "it's us or them"
Needs to be replaced with "we"

Reach for Peace

Reach for Peace By: Mike Mezz

We must stamp out exclusion If you can't trust the police Conflict turns into a solution Without justice there's no peace

Government needs to stop neglect They exploit their own for greed The elite take away all prospects Chances for a better life are obsolete

The mentality of "it's us or them" Needs to be replaced with "we" People do not need to be condemned Without inclusion there's no peace

All people need to be treated as equal This has to be our sacred ideology Stop the policies that are uncongenial There's no peace without equality

We have an obligation to halt poverty Some turn to violence just to eat Poor people have very little opportunity Where poverty exists there's no peace

Climate Change needs to be addressed A lack of water and resources starts war Conflicts arise when nations are stressed There's no peace if we continue to ignore

Ultimately peace begins with you Ordinary people can make a difference When you win who is going to lose? We have to stop ignoring sufferance

We can choose to make our society Just and peaceful or unjust and warlike What is going to be your ideology? Peace and love or battles and fights?

Make a decision

Make a decision To care for the marginalized

Make a decision To care for the ignored

Make a decision Not to characterize

Make a decision To Reach for peace and not war

Peace starts right now with you

Peace starts right now with you Peace starts with everything you do

Let's start reaching for peace
