Sean Thomason, Arizona

Is global warming the greatest challenge facing humankind?

I don't believe so

I believe that there is a greater threat

This threat is, war

Global warming

Is but a mere scratch

On the body of life

War is a bullet wound in its heart

War is an inhumane thing

To fight

To kill


Yes millions of civilians get killed

Millions and millions

Of innocent souls

What is the meaning of war

To fight without end

And if you do

To leave many countries

Or states in ruin

I realize that now war

Is the biggest threat

I hope that I can help

To stop

The war
