THE PLEAS OF THE CHILDREN
“Houses should not burn.
Bombers should not be known.
Night should be for sleep.
Life should not be a punishment.
Mothers] should not cry.
None should kill anyone.
Everyone should build something
There one could trust everyone.
The young should achieve it.
The old as well.“
BERTOLT BRECHT, Germany (1898 –1956)
