A young letter writer shares her optimism for the future.

‘I believe we will find peace’

Be polite to all beings and respectful of things and I believe we will find peace.

Imagine a world with peace –

Such a delight!

It would never be gloomy, the sun would shine bright.

Everyone would be happy and kind and free;

I would just love no war! The world would be happy.

The skies would be bright with no clouds in the sky;

And everyone would smile and always stop and say “hi,” and no one would ever cry.

There would be no gunfire, just the softest birds chirping happily and the laughter of friends;

I hope in the future the wars will all end.

So listen closely to what I say, it could affect you in such a big way:

Be polite to all beings and respectful of things and I believe we will find peace.
