If you have tuned into any radio station over these past few weeks no doubt you’ll have heard John Lennon’s ‘Merry Christmas (War Is Over)’ being played at some point. Along with a few other ‘classics’ it’s always a popular tune this time of the year.
I just wonder though what the great man would think of the world today? Wars, famine, environmental disasters and financial meltdown don’t seem to have been eliminated since his death thirty years ago. I guess he’d say we’ve all been pretty lazy, careless or indifferent.
Fortunately that’s only one side of the coin. The other is characterized by organizations such as Emergency and Save the Children manned by living angels, operating in the best interests of the world as a whole.
The tasks facing these charitable outfits might seem impossible yet they know the cessation of pain comes down to a question of intention and choices, or as Lennon put it: “War is over if you want it.”
With these few words here today I know nothing is likely to change. However, I couldn’t let the opportunity to wish us all Peace on Earth go by and who knows, they might just perhaps cause a ripple somewhere over the rainbow.
Thanks for connecting here.
