Thank YOU, Jama! May Peace prevail. =)

Joy said...

Well done. I like this one.

Linda B said...

There was a small episode today at school, some online stuff, some against others! I wish there was more of what is in your poem in young teens! Well said!

Tara said...

Beautiful !

Violet N. said...

Profound--and you make it look so easy!

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Joy! =)

Bridget Magee said...

Ugh, Linda! I hate to hear that. Kids can be so mean sometimes - especially behind a keyboard. Hopefully these kids will find their peace. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Tara!

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Violet! Believe me it is not easy, but it is fun. =)

The words look so simple, but they have the power to transform life at the locker and between countries. Thanks for sharing!

Mary Lee said...

This would make a great poster!

(by coincidence...or design...the word HOPE is buried in my word verification!)

Renee LaTulippe said...

That says it all! I agree with Mary Lee's poster idea - perfect for the classroom!

Bridget Magee said...

Thank you, Robyn! Some of the simplest words are the hardest to put into action. But we continue to try. =)

Bridget Magee said...

Good idea, Mary Lee! Love that HOPE was there...I wonder if those things are random?

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Renee! I'd love to see a poster like this in every classroom and the concepts taught. =)

Lorie Ann Grover said...

It would make a great visual image as well, Bridget!

Bridget Magee said...

Thanks, Lorie Ann!

Sorry to be a week late to this post (alas, it hasn't been a very peaceful week), but your poem is, indeed, spot on... especially from a kid's viewpoint! I especially love the opening line, "Play fair."

Bridget Magee said...

No worries, Michelle! I'm sorry you haven't had a peaceful week. Sending you peaceful vibes now. =)
