Do you think that your children are the violent ones? It is not your children that are violent; they were grown up in a violent world that has committed violence against them, their parents and their grandparents! Are you mad because there are too many guns in your neighborhood? Which one of you manufactures them? You don't even manufacture toilet paper, so if the guns are here, who put them here? And for what purpose? How are we going to stop violence among the children, when a liar can be a president and put the whole nation at war, killing innocent people on the basis of a lie? The slaughter of people in Iraq, Afghanistan; in Hiroshima, Nagasaki—and all over the world: The enemy is making new weapons of mass destruction every day that they try out on the children of the people in Gaza; in Afghanistan! But you are so busy focusing on the violence in your streets that you are blind to the violence that is being promoted all over the world in America's name!
