Freedom, Peace, Justice and Mercy!

Holland vs. Spain for the FIFA World Cup 2010 final this sunday! None of them ever won a world cup. Who could have know....but then again that's football!

FREEDOM was my interpretation from this event. With the "Wave your flag" anthem chorus by African reggae singer K'naan, it states Africa's dream:

"When I get older, I will be stronger, They'll call me freedom, just like a wavin' flag"

PEACE in Africa, was the lyrics goal on the original version that highlights:

"So many wars, settling scores, Bringing us promises, leaving us poor.

I heard them say 'love is the way'' Love is the answer,' that's what they say!"

JUSTICE, is another word came to my mind thinking of this while I'm here in Ireland. I was impressed by the Irish recent history of independence visiting Kilmainham Gaol jail and seeing the mouvie about the Irish patriot leader Michael Collins.

It made me think that to help build peace, it's IMPORTANT to support the END of INJUSTICE.

Hunger is one of the injustices today!

With less than 4% of the USA's millitary spending we could end it.

Therefore I invite you to sign the online petition on this link to MANIFEST YOUR DISAGREEMENT about the fact that 1 BILLION PEOPLE around the world still LIVE IN HUNGER. It is sponsored by the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) and will be presented to politicians worldwide on their summit!

MERCY was the last word I wish to post today, reminded by this end of hunger online petition and on this video version of Wave your Flag fundrasing for Haiti.

Freedom needs Peace, Peace needs Justice, Justice needs Mercy!

If we belive, we can make a change.

Thank you for your support!
