Defend the world in which we live as if it were your child.                              It IS your child.

Defend it as if it were your lover.                                                                         It IS your lover.

When you inhale and when you exhale breathe the possibility of another world into the 37.2 trillion cells of your body until it shines with hope. Then imagine more.

Imagine rape is unimaginable. Imagine war is a scaraly credible rumor. That the crimes of our age, the grotesque inhumanities of greed, the sheer and astounding shamelessness of it, the vast fortunes made by stealing lives, the horrible normalcy it came to have is unimaginable to our heirs, the generations of the free.

Hold hands.

Share water.

Keep imagining.

So that we, and the children  of our children’s children may live.
