The News Today (from the project “All about His Love”)


This writing comes from a sobering realization that what was addressed as “The news today”, in 1993, is still the news today, seventeen years later. The solution remains the same. Please read this and consider applying it to your life.  Know that together, we can change the news, today.  Peace and love to you.

6‑93           “The News Today”           by  Mark Ettinger

I was looking ‑ at the news today

So many  have the blues today

With rape and theft and hate and war

Don’t let children suffer ‑ no ‑ no more

If we don’t soon stop all this madness

We’ll be lost in sorrow ‑ Bye‑Bye gladness

I saw it in the news today

But it doesn’t have to be this way

One way to change the print on that paper

We have to learn to love  one another

Just raise your voice to God  and pray

For this shame and sorrow to go away

It can happen if we all  pray together

If we don’t ‑ things may never  ever get better

We just have to get down on our knees

Pray to God for peace – God please

With faith and trust and love so pure

Doing things that God so adores

We’ll see peace in the news someday

So lift your voice to God and pray

Peace – God – please

Peace – God – please

No more – no more –  don’t let children suffer

Learn to love – learn to love – love one another

We can change – we can change – the print on that paper

I want to see peace – in the news, today

I want to see hope – in the news, today

I want to see love – in the news, today

I want to read about it, every day

Learn to love – learn to love – love one another

Extra ! Extra!  Read all about it!

God is alive!  He lives in you!
