MY PEACE GLOBE

DONA NOBIS PACEM - GRANT US PEACE
NOVEMBER 7, 2006




This is a picture of my peace globe. Well, folks. Now you know my deepest, darkest secret. I am a technological nimrod. My blog will never have the fancy bells and whistles, simply because it is beyond me to successfully complete anything but the simplest task on a computer. Nevertheless, I am a peace-loving human being who wants to be in on this World Peace thingy, so I'm going to do what I can to further the cause.

Here ya go - can't have a peace rally without this song:

Two, one, two, three, four
Ev'rybody's talking about Bagism,
Shagism, Dragism, Madism, Ragism, Tagism
This-ism, That-ism, is-m, is-m, is-m
All we are saying is give peace a chance,
All we are saying is give peace a chance
C'mon Ev'rybody's talking about ministers, Sinister, Banisters
And canisters, Bishops, Fishops, Rabbis, and Pop eyes,
Bye, bye, bye byes
All we are saying is give peace a chance,
All we are saying is give peace a chance
Let me tell you now Revoluton, evolution, masturbation,
Flagellation, regulation, integrations, Meditations,
United Nations,Congratulations
Ev'rybody's talking about John and Yoko,
Timmy Leary, Rosemary, Tommy Smothers,
Bobby Dylan,Tommy Copper,Derek Taylor,
Norman Mailer, Allen Ginsberg,
Hare Krishna,
Hare, Hare Krishna

And this one, from the Black-Eyed Peas, which I think has a lot of merit, too:

What's wrong with the world, mama
People livin' like they ain't got no mamas
I think the whole world addicted to the drama
Only attracted to things that'll bring you trauma
Overseas, yeah, we try to stop terrorism
But we still got terrorists here livin'In the USA, the big CIA
The Bloods and The Crips and the KKK
But if you only have love for your own race

Then you only leave space to discriminate
And to discriminate only generates hate
And when you hate then you're bound to get irate, yeah
Badness is what you demonstrate
And that's exactly how angers works and operates
Nigga, you gotta have love just to set it straight
Take control of your mind and meditate
Let your soul gravitate to the love, y'all, y'all

People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek
Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love

It just ain't the same, always unchanged
New days are strange, is the world insane
If love and peace is so strong
Why are there pieces of love that don't belong
Nations droppin' bombs
Chemical gasses fillin' lungs of little ones
With the ongoin' sufferin' as the youth die young
So ask yourself is the lovin' really gone

So I could ask myself really what is goin' wrong
In this world that we livin' in people keep on givin'in
Makin' wrong decisions, only visions of them dividends
Not respectin' each other, deny thy brother
A war is goin' on but the reason's undercover
The truth is kept secret, it's swept under the rug
If you never know truth then you never know love

Where's the love, y'all, come on
Where's the truth, y'all, come on
Where's the love, y'all

People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach
And would you turn the other cheek
Father, Father, Father help us
Send us some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love

I feel the weight of the world on my shoulder
As I'm gettin' older, y'all, people gets colder
Most of us only care about money makin'
Selfishness got us followin' our own direction
Wrong information always shown by the media
Negative images is the main criteria
Infecting the young minds faster than bacteria
Kids wanna act like what they see in the cinema

Yo', whatever happened to the values of humanity
Whatever happened to the fairness in equality
Instead in spreading love we spreading animosity
Lack of understanding, leading lives away from unity
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' under
That's the reason why sometimes I'm feelin' down
There's no wonder why sometimes I'm feelin' under
Gotta keep my faith alive till love is found

Sometimes the more bells and whistles something has, the more distractions from what is trully being said.

In the words of Ringo Starr:

"Peace and Love, Peace and Love."
