PEACE ON EARTH
“Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me.
Let there be peace on earth
The peace that was meant to be.
With God as our father
Brothers all are we.
Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony.
Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.
With every step i take
Let this be my solemn vow.
To take each moment
And live each moment
With peace eternally.
Let there be peace on earth,
And let it begin with me.”

Submitters Note

I came across these old writings (which I had forgotten) from over 10 years ago on one of many old usb drives (“dis-organised chaos”). They formed the basis for a book on SA, “the Beloved Country” that I never got to write (  I think, as I tend to lose track of all my books), as I got “side-tracked” on many other projects.

Enjoy anyway.

(two very different countries that I love*)

* who says Kiwis lack passion, other than for rugby!

I want to write stories that matter a lot to me, in terms of my deepest values. True stories from people’s lives in history, that are worth sharing with others, as they have great meaning regarding the universal human condition. I write about ordinary people in exceptional circumstances and times, that hopefully uplift and impact others…

Its a scenario played out at any of a thousand tourist sites the world over, crowds of bored looking teenagers who have already done the gift shop, the coffee bar and the washrooms casually graffiti the walls as they wait for a convoy of buses to take them to their next destination. The problem is this particular wall is at the notorious concentration camp Auschwitz. Is it unfair to accuse a generation of disrespect who have grown up in a society of freedom without responsibility,who have no real knowledge of a world that created Auschwitz.

Now should we be proud of the fact we have brought up generations not stigmatised with the memories of hate that fed the machinery of the second world war or should we in fact be very worried. For me the most worrying aspect is that the same componants that brought about that war still very much…
