THOUGHT FOR THE DAY

A front page that broke my heart

Yesterday I popped in the newsagents and the front page of the Sun broke my heart.

There was a photograph of a little girl killed by a missile in Ukraine! The story was on most other front pages too.

The death was so unnecessary and how come with today’s technology and accuracy they hit this little girl’s home?

They said after World War II “We must never let this happen again. But no one has taken any notice.

You have to question the capability and intelligence of all World Leaders and The United Nations Peacekeepers that they have had 76 years since the end of World War II to come up with a method to stop warmongers.

As the Edwin Starr song says “War, what is it good for, absolutely nothing! Say it again!”

A brilliant song with very relevant words.

It is worth considering those lyrics. The world needs to take on board the lyrics.

“War” Recorded by Edwin Starr – Some of the very relevant lyrics.

Written by: Norman Whitfield, Barrett Strong

 

War, huh, yeah

What is it good for?

Absolutely nothing, uh-huh, uh-huh

 

War, huh, yeah

What is it good for?

Absolutely nothing, say it again, y’all

 

Oh war, I despise

‘Cause it means destruction of innocent lives

War means tears to thousands of mothers’ eyes

When their sons go off to fight and lose their lives

 

War, it ain’t nothing but a heartbreak

War, friend only to the undertaker

 

Oh, war, is an enemy to all mankind

The thought of war blows my mind

War has caused unrest within the younger generation

Induction then destruction, who wants to die?

 

Oh, war has shattered many a young man’s dreams

Made him disabled, bitter and mean

Life is much too short and precious to spend fighting wars these days

War can’t give life, it can only take it away

 

Peace, love and understanding, tell me

Is there no place for them today?

They say we must fight to keep our freedom

But lord knows there’s got to be a better way

 

Oh, war, huh, good god, y’all

What is it good for?

You tell me, (nothing) say it, say it, say it, say it

 

War, huh, good god, yeah, huh

What is it good for?

Stand up and shout it (nothing)!!!!!

 

 

 

REMEMBER: The most wasted of all days is one without laughter.

– Nicolas Chamfort

 

INSPIRATIONAL QUOTE FOR THE DAY

If we don’t end war, war will end us. – H. G. Wells

War is only a cowardly escape from the problems of peace. – Thomas Mann

HAPPINESS IS…

Happiness is…found in a world where there is no war

LOVE IS…

Love is…full of peace

TURN…TURN…TURN!

A time to end fighting forever…A Time to keep the peace.
