This is my peaceful letter to whoever wants to read it. You might disagree with what I say, but hate is not permitted here. This is about sharing my opinion because here we have freedom of opinion. And this makes the difference.
The world I used to know is changing and I’m worried about it. But I’m a dreamer and I still believe a world without discrimination, hate and fear is possible.
Look at you. You pursued terror. You pursued fear, screams and death.
Look at you, you made a city fall down to their knees and before the carnage was finished you had already set new ones. You have menaced Washington, Milan, Rome and my dear London.
You believe you are doing this for your believes, but you don’t care your son or your daughter could be in the building you are going to make explode. You don’t hear the child’s tears when everything he knows is gone. Forever.
You set Paris on fire, for what? Do you feel god right now?
Yes, we are not faultless, we are not innocent, we made mistakes. But look at us: all over the world people are shocked for that. Look at Europe: nowhere else there has been peace for such a long time. United we stand, divided we fall. We are united. And we are ready to fight.
We switch guns and bombs, for flower and dreams.
We exchange discrimination with collaboration.
We offer free help. But you ask for it.
What we have learnt by now is that freedom is the most important value of the world. If you are not free, you are not equal to anyone. If you are not free, you can’t be yourself.
Look at the mountains. Look at them, only one second more. This is what are: strong, unbeatable, we won’t give up. We stand. We fall down, we get back up and we know where we want to be in 10 years time. We would be glad if you want to join in our peaceful world. We would love to set the table for one more person, it will make the difference. There’s always room for you, even when you’re not ready to say sorry, as long as you don’t want to do it again.
Speak. Scream. Write. In any way you want, but tell us what’s the point, why you want to destroy us. We can talk about it. There’s a seat in the room for you. Take a seat, have a glass of wine, tell us what’s wrong with us. Tell us what are our worst faults. But don’t attack us, because you have faults as well.
This is the government, the one which takes the decision. It’s not the citizen, it’s not the child who made that. I don’t know where are my country’s war equipment. I don’t own a pistol. I don’t help crime in your country. I have a blog. I write about what happens to me. That’s my fault. My friends in Paris are students, artists, bloggers. They don’t take decisions for their countries, they only know the ones the government let them know. They only try to survive. To live. And you should live as well.
Come one, let’s meet for a coffee. Tell me what you want me to change, then I’ll tell you what I want you to change. And then let’s talk. Let’s try, let’s put some effort. World peace is possible. World peace means the world must collaborate. World peace is achievable.
Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace…
A young woman from the world
