Today I write to you with a sense of urgency!
I see that my ideas are fallling on deaf ears and hardened hearts
and that you may need to be taken by the shoulders and shaken awake.
I've been begging for help for 9 months, and until today still can't name 1 person who agrees with me, much less follows my light. I begin to wonder if mankind is worth saving!
What I offer is a simple idea which could easily be modified into a peaceful answer to the worlds problems. I don't ask for money, I shun recognition and praise, my only goal is peace on earth and good will toward all men and women.
Until today I've tried to leave religion completly out of my project, but today I feel it's needed.
As a chistian I was taught that "we were all created equal in the eyes of the Lord" and I know that the Quaran says essentially the same, "All men are created by One and the Same Eternal God"
Why then do you all look away from the desperate need in the world?
Are the poor not your equal?
I've heard so many fine excuses for why some of you can't help,
my job, my family or my house, they all require so much time.
"Animals can't take care of themselves, but people can."
"It's not my fault, I didn't take their money!"
"The poor are poor becuase they're lazy!"
I say "stand before your God and explain that"!
I don't want your excuses, I can't hear any more foolish justifications,
it's time for action, because your time is running out.
It's not God who keeps the repressed down, but humans.
The persuit of money and pleasure has made us blind to the fact that we steal the food right out of the hands of the poor with each day we chase our capitalistic ideals.
We rob the earth of her minerals and throw our waste into her oceans and air.
No matter what your politicians tell you, Mother Nature will make us pay
and only the rich are prepared for the concequences.
How does my plan change this?
I propose that we recycle plastic now polluting the earth into products capable of feeding the poor.
I propose that the poor be given jobs collecting, sorting, cleaning and recycling the plastic.
I propose that the recycled plastic be made into garden parts and given to the poor.
I propose that our youth create "how-to" lessons to teach poor children how to grow food.
The list goes much further if you'd care to hear it!
Just these few simple steps would greatly reduce pollution,
give desperately poor people opportunities to provide for their families,
remove the causes of much hatred and reasons for war,
which could all lead to the number one goal of all of mankind,
Peace on earth!
OK, it's not simple and it won't be solved tomorrow, but if we begin today,
Zero Hunger by 2030 could be within our reach.
I beg you to become a part of the solution!
Help me search for simple yet effective ways to turn garbage into hope.
Stop wasting time on excuses and pitch in, put the human back into humanity.
