" I address this speech to all the daisies and poppies of the earth as well as to all the uman beings who have a good heart.
The man who have lived on our planet for many centuries have been developing a science composed of all the inventions made for human well being

All of us, daisies and poppies alike, agree about the objective of uman well being, but we won't agree any more if the discoveries of science are used to offend the wear, the animals, the birds, the sea, the plants, the flowers, the air that we breathe and the natural sounds of the earth.

My little friend Pinchy told me that 56 years ago many of his ancestors were burned to death as a result of an abuse of science discoveries.

This terrible act happened during the last world war when on august 6th and 9th of 1945, two "atomic bombs" where launched on Hiroscima and Nagasaki.

After this incident the great scientists Einstain and the great philosopher Beltrand Russel, together with other scientists with good hearts, left an important message to all men, known as the

" Testament of Einstein "

"if we will know how to use the intelligence of man and the tremendous power of the energy at our disposal for pacific and uman ends, we will find the door to a new paradise; otherwise we risk the danger of an universal tragedy "

Dear friends for this moment on our obligation should be to unite all those who protect the weak, the animals, the birds, the sea, the plants, the flowers, the air that we breathe and the natural sounds of the earth ".

Concluding his speech, Poppy ate a small rations of peas, lentils and celery and rested for a few hours suspended in the air as if in a virtual hammock.
