Never let the fear of striking out keep you from playing the game


Everyone agrees that war is cruel.

Everyone agrees that war is suicidal.

Everyone agrees that war brings mortar, anger,

Hunger, pain, suffering, death, horror, and terror

But a nuclear war is deadlier, nastier, and bloodier

More painful, more criminal, more infernal.

More devastating, more witless and more evil.

Human beings were born to put things together,

To build, not to destruct and not to murder.

God created humans to make the world better

Not to destroy, not to burn or to shatter.

A nuclear war would be a total disaster.

No human is really dumb to have such a war.

Let’s swear not to have a darn one. We can roar

Like lions to scare off the tigers. We can fistfight

All we want. The best way to test our might

is to dialogue, to talk to each other like humans.

To avoid the ruins and to find lasting solutions.
