One Day...

One day …

Youngsters will learn words they will not understand.

Children from India will ask:
What is hunger?
Children from Alabama will ask:
What is racial segregation?
Children from Hiroshima will ask:
What is the atomic bomb?
Children at school will ask:
What is war?

You will answer them.
You will tell them:

Those words are not used any more.
Like stagecoaches, galleys or slavery.

Words no longer meaningful.

That is why they have been
removed from the dictionaries.

(Martin Luther King)

"How many people find fault in what they're reading and the fault is in their own understanding" Al Mutanabbi

If only. and I am sure children now also ask what is the atom bomb... and people from alaska are taught about racial segregation... and war... and poverty.

Not only are those things not going to go away, expecting it to happen is extreme naivety.

Ofcourse they may not know what an atomic bomb is if they find something more successful.
