One Day Children Will Ask… “What is War” … A Message of Hope for 2012

One Day Children Will Ask...  "What is War" ...  A Message of Hope for 2012

One day,

Youngsters will learn words they will not understand, 

Children from India will ask: “What is hunger?”

Children from Alabama will ask: “What is racial segregation?”

Children from Hiroshima will ask: “What is the atomic bomb?”

Children at school will ask: “What is war?”

You will answer them, you will tell them: “Those are words not used any more,

Like ‘stage-coaches’, ‘galleys’ or ‘slavery’,

Words no longer meaningful,

That is why they have been removed from dictionaries.”

 Martin Luther King
