A writing of Maya Angelou poem(A brave and startling truth) – By Latisha Kanime


People should make peace with each other. Violence is not the answer. Violence is the reason why people star wars. Us as citizens of a country should make peace with others. We should help others solve problems they can’t do on their own. When people start violence it ends up with blood and guilt. Violence is the cause of war and peoples death.

”And when we come to it

To the day of peacemaking

When we release our fingers

From fists of hostility

And allow the pure air to cool our palm”


Where there is violence, there is hate. Hatred is very common these days. People that hate each other become enemies, as well as best friends. When two people are best friends and become enemies at the end loneliness is what comes to the heart and mind.

At the end let us let go of our guns and end the war, because we are tired of hatred and we want to end all the fighting. Let us make peace with each other and love each other. Where there is peace there is love.
