I’m all for world peace.
In place of a birthday cake,I want all the current wars to end. They are so needless.
In place of expensive gifts I want an end to coups and ethnic violence.
Instead of throwing a party, I hope the United Nations peacekeeping force becomes ceremonial and that the International Red Cross remain as only a topic in Social Studies.
Instead of dancing and playing music, I want a world without guns, bombs and other weapons.
Today is special to me because I am not afraid a bomb can drop on my house this minute or that an armour tank can crush me as I cross the street.
All I want is for peace to reign around the globe.
