The Powers They Possess

There is a generation of women and men walking our planet right now… whose own ideals outweigh their deep personal greed. They are young, but the beliefs inside the hearts and minds of these young people are the ones we used to dream about. The unwavering truths that hold their minds together are planted in righteousness. The powers they possess are used for good.

They are refugees living on The Congo border, who fled Rwanda as infants.
They survived the Earthquakes in Haiti, Chile… the tsunami of Japan.
They are dying in the streets of Bahrain, Libya, Cote D’Ivoire, Suarez, Iraq and Afghanistan.
They are the unwavering youths of Tunisia and Egypt.
Their beliefs have changed this world.

So the moms and dads, grandparents and teachers, older brothers and sisters, retired

hippies and current tea partiers, futbol coaches and spiritual leaders of this world… you have done a good thing too. You have raised a generation of women and men walking our planet right now, who will not stand for oppression and corruption from our leaders. The powers they posses are far beyond our own capabilities… it’s okay with me though, because those powers will be used for good.
