Everybody Is Right

We all believe in different things and we all believe that what believe is right.

Even if of there is a small question in our hearts, we will find a way to justify we are right.


Wars are made, relationships and marriages are destroyed, homes are broken, friends become enemies,

enemies become friends, all because of what we believe.

The  thoughts that we give birth to and the thoughts that we  we conceive.


Gays fight for their equality because they believe that they are right.

Those that hate them commit crimes against them, because they believe that they are right.


The twin towers were destroyed before our eyes, while taking human life.

All because someone believed that what they believe was right.


I often wonder what each person inside those towers believed in before they lost their life.

If they found what they expected on the other side ,did they find out that they were right.


I wonder if the hijacker wanted to change his mind anytime during the flight.

Or did  he convert the darkness in his heart to light to make believe he was right.


We are taught to stand up or what we believe in, to fight for what is right.

So we will never have peace on earth because everybody is right.


Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me....

First define a line between right and wrong that everyone can see....
