This child is my child. This child represents all of us, regardless of race, religion or belief system. He is your child. He is everyone’s child.
What these children living in war-torn countries have endured, have seen and experienced at this young age should NEVER happen to ANY child. EVER! If you are not OUTRAGED by WAR, why not?
How can a child who has endured war, violence, abuse and loss of family and country ever hope to live a ‘normal’ life? Trauma remains deep within the psyche and the cellular memory. We know this from the research. He and those like him will be scarred for life.
War creates more war – because it creates people who disassociate, who cannot feel, who shield themselves from their feelings and from being vulnerable and open. They are the walking wounded. They physical wounds may heal, but the emotional wounds last a lifetime and are passed down through the generations.
Trauma victims learn to cope and survive rather than live and thrive.
We are killing off our species. Sure more will be born, but they will carry the wounds, the emotional wounds of trauma. Those wounds will be inherited by future generations. Is this what we want for our children and grand-children? NO! Why would we want this for the children of another country?
May the child that still lives within us, that innocent little being we were when we were young reach out to the heart of this child and all like him.
There is a part of us who knew then and still knows but is afraid to share the wisdom – how to love openly and honestly. We have repressed that knowing because we too were hurt and traumatized in our own childhoods. May that gentle, loving child within each us reach out to those who are still children, who are not yet adults, who are vulnerable.
May love pour from our hearts to theirs, across the borders, across time and space. Sending a soothing salve of love, a LOVE BALM to their little hearts.
May the inner child of all those who promote war for their own personal gain – those who are making millions off war – may their inner child wake up and realize what they are doing to humanity to future generations. May their inner child be HEALED and put a stop to the wars they have created.
Let’s WAGE PEACE not war.
I pray for all beings, for all the innocents worldwide.
I pray for each of us.
I pray PEACE.
I pray LOVE.
I pray HEALING.
I pray ENLIGHTENMENT.
I pray AWARENESS.
I pray PEACE within the HEARTS and MINDS of ALL HUMANITY.
WE MUST PUT A STOP TO WARS. Our world depends on it our species depends on it!
