Mr. Putin you are the leader of the one of the world's most powerful and feared nations. The fact of the matter is what you say and deiced to do with that nation's power will indefinitely affect the world. I beg of you to not play the game of RISK with the world. My generation is young and just learning how to make it by itself. We are weak and fragile, but still the makers and shapers of what is to happen after you are gone. Mr. President you hold the key to the fate of our future. I can only ask that you keep it safe and use it wisely. You only get one chance sir, there are no redoes. I know you are a smart and wealthy man. You are strong, persistent, and knows what he wants. I can tell because you the head and voice for Russia. I also so know you were a KGB lieutenant colonel, so I know you must have a high intellectual capacity. Looking at how fast you climbed the later I would say you have plenty of ambition. Always remember Mr. Putin the story of Julius Caesar and how ambition was his downfall. What I am saying is that you are at a cross roads right now. You could very well start World War 3, and the eleventh mass extinction this Earth world has gone through. You could also on the other hand withdrawal your troops from Ukraine and instead of taking over, instill peace and prosperity. Let them live out their simple lives in a world they have built with the sweat of their brow and the strength of their hands. Let them grow and come to once again call Russia thier brother. Let the world go on as it always has, a blue sphere spinning at a 1000 km/hr. in the vast emptiness of space. Help my generation do what our predecessors have failed to do. Help us to find a universal peace, a unity in humanity, and achieve what everything others have called impossible. I am just a 17 your old boy on the verge of manhood and the life of a soldier. I pray that I live in a world were I will never be called to defend or attack. Because I am also a writer, thinker, mathematician, musician, artist, and big brother. I pray my brother will go into a world as a doctor to heal those who are broken. Broken by old age and disease, and never done by war's evil deeds. Never by the bullets I may fire, or the bombs that we acquire. I hope that I will live in a world that will let me grow old and happy. A world were I can one day bend down on one knee and ask my girlfriend Emily to marry me. A world were the only combat is in fiction. A world were I can come and thank you for making the right choices. A world were I can meet another boy right know that fears his life is about to get bloody. That what little innocence he has been left with will be taken away. Taken by the murder he will commit in the name of his country or in the name of mine. I am afraid that Emily will live alone. That the hopes we have off one day having a small happy home with vanish. Vanish like matter after and atom bomb. I am afraid my brother and sisters will live in a world that is nothing but the rubble we leave behind. A world were the past 2,000 years of human knowledge is missing. Destroyed by the flames of war. A place were you and I will be all but forgotten. That my little brother now to young to understand what the reality of war is will have to learn hard. To see first hand what has happened so many times before. He does not know the black deeds of Hitler, the horrible acts of mass African slavery, or the word genocide. He is young and believes the only evil is the dark side of the force. He believes that the only evil is the evil of another species. He is so young and just learning to what the world really is. He will one day know what I know ,and live with the burden of that knowledge. The knowledge that you and I let mass genocide occur. That we let Israel turn into to what it barely survived. We let the U.S. set up sadistic dictatorships. We failed to do what is right and help those in dire help just out of pure humanity. I use to think that America only entered a war or a fight to save those who were in need. I use to think every country would do that. Now I am older and more experienced I realize this is not true. Governments are driven by what will make them money. They won't help the weak unless there is a gain. I hope that for once in the history of this earth a nation will change that. I hope it will be yours Mr. Putin because deep down I know it won't be mine. Please Mr. Putin be the most honorable man. I need a hero, I need someone to look up to as a leader. I need to know that some were out there whether on Earth or in the vast obsidian sky that this is some one who can embody the true ideals of justice. That someone can pick up the banner of hope and charge into to the face of impossibility swinging it back and forth in defiance to those who say else wise. I want you to set my generation up to achieve more then humanity ever has. I ask you to please make peace in the world. To end wars and establish unity. To use the power you have acquired and shape the world into a master piece.
