Have you heard the cry?

Have you heard the cry? Have you heard of the child? The cry that says, "Please, help me. Please, help me before I die. Please, don't let me die without a fight."

Have you heard the cry of the oppressed?
The cry that says, "Help us. Help us regain our pride and our dignity. Help us regain our rights to live in our homes, and not be evicted from them."

Have you heard the cry of the warrior?
The cry that says, "Join us. Join us in building the world. Join us, in aiding the oppressed and the needy, and bringing justice to those who oppressed and did wickedness."

I think you have heard these cries before.

And I think you have heard this one as well:

"Maybe tommorow, I will do something to help those people."
I think this cry came from all of our mouths at one point.

The problem is, it never left us.

And we have not answered the cries of the children, the oppressed or the warriors.

We shall.

Or die trying.
