Letter To World Leaders

These words are addressed to all the rulers of the world. No matter the nationality, ideology or religion to practice. We are all human beings. We are all others. I am writing from the reality of being just a man. A man who has doubts regarding the management of the world. And I wonder, I wonder: If governments really were really wise Would there be a single starving child? Being all brothers of the same race and color "would make war? I think it's a simple question and elementary logic, if everyone in this world we have created may be some logic. It does not seem normal for an elderly woman is begging a coin in front of a subway, or a child to walk barefoot in the harsh winter or a mother does not have a piece of bread to feed their children.

And sentimentality is not because the issue does not come from that side. This is the reality we see every day. Some countries may be better than others, will have more technology, another level of living, better opportunities for their young, but the reality of the gray world (as I call it) shows that more than half the world population is hungry, that only 10% of humans who inhabit this blessed planet Earth have all the needs covered. The rest remain adrift from a trip to nowhere. Is this normal? We are beginning the twenty-first century and is still as brutal as ever. Have we advanced in our psychological and emotional aspects? There are nuclear threat and weapons manufacturing what happens? Of course, do not understand the brightness of a flower petal, do not feel the aroma of thyme mixed with morning dew.
