“Why I’m here again is, everybody is beating the war drum; we don’t want war; who can stand war? We want something better for our youths. Everybody is beating the drum of war; we don’t want war; Who can stand war? We want something better for our youths.

“We should better use them for something good other than shouting war and anarchy. We don’t want that. We told the President that and he is on the same page with us. Politicians should be careful not to throw things out of proportion. We should make sure things are right.
