Tell Me Why …

Just listen, listen to that penetrating voice of this child asking:

Tell me why, does it have to be like this

Tell me why, is there something I’ve missed

Tell me why, cause I don’t understand

When some many need somebody, we don’t give a helping hand

Tell me why …

Let’s just listen, let it touch your heart and soul, and let the tears swirl in your eyes, and hope and pray that we all will have a better tomorrow, then get off our sorry asses and do something already!

    I like to add serious comments on the international geopolitical situation especially with regard to the Asian contribution to environmental destruction and energy depletion and the raising threatening issue of overpopulation.
    I just came back from Japan and found that there’s a subterraneous feeling of competition and fear regarding Chinese power.

    What does the future hold ?

    assisinaturecouncil, I have to say that I am tired that the Westerners continue to accuse China’s contribution to the world over population and over comsumption of environmental resources, while at the same time accuse China’s one-child policy for human right deprivation!
    BTW, China’s one-child policy only applies to Han Chinese, not any other minorities, including Tibetans.
    Now are you happy?

    Share a poem I found on the internet:
    When We were called Sick man of Asia, We were called The Peril.
    When We are billed to be the next Superpower, We are called The threat.

    When We were closed our doors, You smuggled Drugs to Open Markets.
    When We Embrace Freed Trade, You blame us for Taking away your jobs.

    When We were falling apart, You marched in your troops and wanted your
    fair share.
    When We were putting the broken pieces together again, Free Tibet you
    screamed, it was an invasion!
    ( When Woodrow Wilson Couldn’t give back Birth Place of Confucius back
    to Us,
    But He did bought a ticket for the Famine Relief Ball for us.)

    So, We Tried Communism, You hated us for being Communists
    When We embrace Capitalism, You hate us for being Capitalist.

    When We have a Billion People, you said we were destroying the planet.
    When We are tried limited our numbers, you said It was human rights
    abuse.

    When We were Poor, You think we are dogs.
    When We Loan you cash, You blame us for your debts.

    When We build our industries, You called us Polluters.
    When we sell you goods, You blame us for global warming.

    When We buy oil, You called that exploitation and Genocide.
    When You fight for oil, You called that Liberation.

    When We were lost in Chaos and rampage, You wanted Rules of Law for us.
    When We uphold law and order against Violence, You called that Violating
    Human Rights.

    When We were silent, You said you want us to have Free Speech.
    When We were silent no more, You say we were Brainwashed-Xenophoics.

    Why do you hate us so much? We asked.
    No, You Answered, We don’t hate You.

    We don’t Hate You either,
    But Do you understand us?

    Of course We do, You said,
    We have AFP, CNN and BBCs…

    What do you really want from us?
    Think Hard first, then Answer…

    Because you only get so many chances,
    Enough is Enough, Enough Hypocrisy for this one world.

    We want One World, One Dream, And Peace On Earth.
    This Big Blue Earth is Big Enough for all of Us

    Marisa,

    What suggestions could you give Chinese people on environmental destruction and energy depletion? Tell them to live the poor life like 50 years ago, so that you westerners can continue your energy-consuming lifestyle for another 100 years? At least most Chinese people are still taking buses, subways or bicycles to work. But Americans would drive an SUV for a half-mile-away shopping.

  13. Dear readers- Chinese or not Chinese

    I am sorry that my comments of last year were misinterpreted. On the contrary, I am one that appreciated the one-child policy, for its efforts to counteract the overpopulation issue, which is not good for the world nd not for China also.
    I hevan’t commented favourably on the Japanese feelings towards China, I just reported, and you know what ? ” do not shoot the messenger” !
    I hope instead that both Asian countries can overcome with their ingenuity and hard work this economic crisis. But I underline the fact that one of the reasons for the crisis, of ANY crisis, is the fact that the population of this planet has grown to such a size that is destroying the resources needed for living. This is fatally influencing the price of resources and brings poverty for everybody, We have only one Earth and we must work together, forgetting the past rivalities, to save what we got.

    Marisa
