Dear Lorna Ye,

I completely agree! If we can teach our children to not be scared of us, but rather come to us to voice their opinions, concerns, fears & ideas, & were we to really listen to them- we can help them shape their future so there is much less hatred, injustice & tyranny!

I would like to start by killing TV news. Keep NPR & that’s it! Maybe get rid of all TV! Listen to the radio! Read a newspaper or three! Or better yet — write them! Encourage the children to write them! All right, any other ideas?

Oh, & the only children going off to war are the children of politicians of every country! Let’s see how quickly peace is declared.
