I just found this from 2012 and have to ask the same questions 5 years later. Nothing has changed
“An eye for an eye
will make us all blind.”
After all the cheerful Christmas posts I have been writing and reading, I remembered this video – Happy Christmas (War is Over) from John Lennon.
Lennon was murdered on 8 December 1980 and so it is obviously many years since he sang this song but what has changed? War is still being raged around the world; people are dying; children are being maimed; people are starving; people are being punished for their beliefs; bombs are still being manufactured by countries who deny this; prisoners are being inhumanely treated…. Will we ever learn?
And compare that video with the words of Imagine
YES JUST IMAGINE
Wouldn’t that make for a Very Happy Christmas
