    INTRODUCTORY POEM

    IN 3 LANGUAGES: English, French and Spanish

    CHILDREN ARE STARS OF PEACE

       Dear Children, you were born with loving hearts

    And in them star-seeds of peace

    You are the future, you are life,

    You do not want to die in wars

    Like some of your fathers and mothers

     

    Smart children, armed

    With smart-phones and computers

    You will shoot your peace messages

    All over the Middle East

    All over our global village

     

    Your rapid fingers will bring us

    What we failed to bring you –

    A world where not one gun is fired

    A world where each child

     Is a twinkling star of Peace

    Well-fed and smiling at life.

    Ada Aharoni

     

    LES ENFANTS SONT DES ÉTOILES DE PAIX
    Chers enfants, vous êtes nés avec des cœurs aimants
    Et en eux des graines de paix.
    Vous êtes l’avenir, vous êtes la vie
    Vous ne voulez pas mourir dans les guerres
    Comme certains de vos pères et de vos mères

    Enfants brillants, vous enverrez vos étoiles de paix
    Par vos smartphones et ordinateurs

    Partout au Moyen-Orient
    Et dans tout notre village mondial.

    Vos doigts rapides nous apporteront
    Ce que nous n’avons pas pu vous apporter –
    Un monde où aucune arme n’est tirée
    Pour tuer des pères, des mères et des enfants –
    Un monde où chaque enfant est une étoile de paix
    Bien nourri et souriant à la vie !

    Ada Aharoni
