You stand there and glare at him,
fists clenched on your hips.
What good is your anger doing?
Is it making the world any happier?
No.
It’s just hurting him more to look
at your screwed-up life. Your hate
is making the world a worse place
than it already was.
 
Look at the bombings that Iraqis endure.
Look at the starving kids in Africa.
Are they angry? Do they scream and shout?
No.
They live day by day, trying to find a way
to survive. They try to keep their spirits
rising, always looking for the best in people.
You shoot a man because he looks funny,
you slap an old lady who can’t move fast enough.
Is this the way our generation should
be living and behaving?
No.
We’ve got enough anger and hatred in this
world as it is. Just let the world be for
two minutes. Let yourself be happy, let
yourself be at peace. Let this world heal.
 
This world has enough hate without us adding to it.
