The Monroe Times: One Child Can Change the World

The following is an article I had published in our local paper. The Monroe Times, on January 12, 2016 titled “One Child Can Change the World” and I quote:

“Letter to the editor: One child can change the world”

From LaVern Isely

To the editor:

Republican Donald Trump is running for president, along with a lot of other Republicans who are not as rich as he is. Other Republican candidates running get contributions from rich contributors and it happens in both political parties. It would be nice if we had campaign finance reform and could limit the amount of money the candidates can spend but up to now, this hasn’t happened.

People like Donald Trump, who is a billionaire, has a huge advantage over the other candidates because he can say what he wants to say, even if it’s wrong. Such as the fact that he is trying to lump all the Muslims into just one group. By doing that he’s forcing the good ones into joining with the bad ones because he doesn’t give any distinction between the groups and why the Muslims are fighting each other.

It’s quite possible that the good Muslims feel they can live together with Christians. After all, before Bush-Cheney invaded Iraq, who did respect Christians at that time, has even gotten worse. A lot of this happened because of the way the bad Muslims interpreted their holy book.

There are a lot of Muslims in the world and there is nothing more evident of this taking place than a situation in Pakistan, with a young girl named Malala. Her father, who happened to be a teacher, taught boys and girls, even though the bad Muslims, whom we call ISIS members, Malala and her father referred to them as the Taliban. Since Arab is their nationality and Muslim is their religion and the fact that Malala wrote an excellent book “I Am Malala” in her language, as well as in English, which every American should read first before they see the movie “He Named Me Malala” now showing in the U.S. and on DVD.

The movie portrays what happened after she was shot in the face by the Taliban for going to school, which they considered a sin. The recovery was long and hard and they didn’t know if she would even live. Malala’s family requested they send her to England because they had better medical facilities and it worked. She states: “One child, one teacher, one book, and one pen can change the world.””

(THE WORLD IS GOING TO HAVE TO FIGURE OUT WHAT THE WORLD OF MUSLIM’S GOALS ARE AND CAN THEY ACHIEVE A DEMOCRATIC GOVERNMENT? I DOUBT THAT ALL THE MUSLIMS CHEERED WHEN THE TWIN TRADE TOWERS IN NEW YORK WERE HIT BY TWO AIRPLANES ON 9/11 LIKE DONALD TRUMP SAID. THE MAJORITY OF THE PEOPLE THAT HIJACKED THE PLANES WERE FROM SAUDI ARABIA AND WHILE THE MANY ARAB COUNTRIES HAVE DIFFERENT VIEWS OF HOW THEIR QURAN (MUSLIM HOLY BOOK) IS INTERPRETED, YOU’RE NOT GOING TO GET ANYBODY IN THE WORLD TO LIVE WITH THEM IF THEY ARE CALLING OTHER PEOPLE THAT DON’T AGREE WITH THEM “INFIDELS.” IT’S LIKE MALALA SAID IN HER EXCELLENT BOOK “I AM MALALA,” THE MUSLIMS ARE MISINTERPRETING THE QURAN, WHILE SOME HAVE GOTTEN SO RADICAL, WE NOW CALL THEM ISIS MEMBERS BUT IT DOES NOT INCLUDE THE WHOLE MUSLIM RELIGION. YOU CANNOT DO LIKE SOME REPUBLICAN PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES WANT TO DO AND CARPET-BOMB THEIR COUNTRIES BECAUSE YOU WILL BE CREATING A LOT MORE SERIOUS PROBLEMS ALREADY IN THEIR COUNTRY BY KILLING INNOCENT PEOPLE. YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE TO TRACK THEM DOWN, ONE AT A TIME BECAUSE THEY ARE ACTING LIKE A SMALL GROUP OF WELL-ORGANIZED TERRORISTS. PRESIDENT OBAMA HAS TALKED ABOUT HOW TO SOLVE THE PROBLEM OF ISIS IN HIS LAST “STATE OF THE UNION” ADDRESS MESSAGE ON JANUARY 12, 2016 AND SAID HE HOPED THE REPUBLICANS WOULD WORK ALONG WITH THE DEMOCRATS WITH THE LEAST AMOUNT OF SUFFERING TO SOLVE THE ISIS PROBLEM. PEOPLE FROM BOTH POLITICAL PARTIES FEEL DONALD TRUMP WAS SHOOTING FROM THE HIP AND PROBABLY GOING TOO FAST, CREATING MORE ENEMIES THAN REALLY THINKING THINGS THROUGH LIKE MALALA DID WHO WON A NOBEL PEACE PRIZE.

About tim074

I'm a retired dairy farmer that was a member of the National Farmer's Organization (NFO). Before going farming, I spent 4 years in the United States Air Force where I saved up enough money to get my down payment to go farming. I also enjoy writing and reading biographies and I write about myself as well as articles and excerpts I find interesting. I'm specifically interested in finances, particularly in the banking industry because if it wasn't for help from my local Community Bank, I never could have started farming which I was successful at. So, I'm real interested in the Small Business Administration and I know they are the ones creating jobs. I have been a member of Common Cause and am now a member of Public Citizen as well as AARP. I have, in the past, written over 150 articles on the Obama Blog (my.barackobama.com) and I'd like to tie these two sites together. I'm also on Twitter, MySpace and Facebook and find these outlets terrifically interesting particularly what many of these people did concerning the uprising in the Arab world. I believe this is a smaller world than we think it is and my goal is to try to bring people together to live in peace because management needs labor like labor needs management. Up to now, that hasn't been so easy to find.
