    What if...
    you saw me walking down the street...
    You don't know who I am...
    or anything about me...
    Would you want to kill me ?

    If you knew I had a family...
    Would you be less likely to want to kill me ?

    Does it seem strange to you, that somebody would want to kill someone they don't even know ?
    What if they were wearing a uniform, that is different than your own ?

    If you saw me through your gunsight...
    Would you choose to see me... Dead ?
    If you knew I had a family...
    Would you still prefer me... Dead ?

    What if the tide was turned...
    and it was I who had the gun ?
    Should I pull the trigger...
    and make it so you're dead ???

    What is it about 'War'... that can make 'killers' of us all ?
    Make potential 'friends'... become 'enemies' ?
    Do we even know what it is we are fighting for...
    or what we could be dying for ?

    When the bombs are being dropped...
    Do we give a thought to who they'll kill ? What if it was I who was dropping the bombs...
    and they were on your family's head ???

    Take a look at your closest friend.
    You were 'strangers' before you met !
    Aren't you glad that given the chance,
    You didn't choose to see him... Dead ?

    We were all 'strangers' before we became 'friends' !
    Why should someone else's war,
    prevent us from being 'friends' ???

    See these children playing...
    they are children like your own !
    Don't you be the reason,
    they soon could all be 'dead' !!!

    'Bombs' are so destructive...
    There is nothing 'innocent' in their path ! Man... Woman... Child... Baby...
    All are the same... to a Bomb !!!

    What if the people who 'start a war'
    are the only ones to fight...
    the rest of us stand side by side,
    and 'for peace' we do unite ?

    Nobody there... to drop the bombs...
    Nobody there... to 'kill' !
    Just you and I as could-be friends... Preferring to 'respect'...
    rather than 'kill' !!!

    How many holes need to be dug...
    Before we take a stand against War ?

    Say 'no' to killing a potential 'Friend' !!!
