I tried.. but I have something to say...

They sing it so much more eloquently...



To every thing, turn, turn, turn
There is a season, turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven
A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep
To everything, turn, turn, turn
There is a season, turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven
A time to build up, a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones
A time to gather stones together
To everything, turn, turn, turn
There is a season, turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven
A time of love, a time of hate
A time of war, a time of peace
A time you may embrace
A time to refrain from embracing
To everything, turn, turn, turn
There is a season, turn, turn, turn
And a time to every purpose under heaven
A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sew
A time to love, a time to hate
A time for peace, I swear it's not too late

"Choose
The single clenched fist lifted and ready,
Or the open hand held out and waiting.
Choose:
For we meet by one or the other."
- Carl Sandburg

"You can't shake hands with a clenched fist."
- Indira Ghandi

"Peace has to be created, in order to be maintained. It is the product of Faith, Strength, Energy, Will, Sympathy, Justice, Imagination, and the triumph of principle. It will never be achieved by passivity and quietism."
- Dorothy Thompson

"If you want to make peace, you don't talk to your friends. You talk to your enemies."
- Moshe Dayan

"How can one not speak about war, poverty, and inequality when people who suffer from these afflictions don't have a voice to speak?"
- Isabel Allende

"This will be our reply to violence: to make music more intensely, more beautifully, more devotedly than ever before."
- Leonard Bernstein



Love you all more than my luggage!
Hugs, smooches and gropes!

You have the innate ability to find music, videos and words to state eloquently your thoughts and desires.

A beautiful post on a special day.

Wonderful post. The Byrds video was great, but the Lennon one was very special. That is one of my favorite songs and I love his version, I never saw this video before. I can honestly say I had tears in my eyes, listening to Lennon can do that to me. Thank you.

Thanks sweet Julie. He certainly did. Experiencing war first-hand brings forth some truly beautiful ideas on occasion...
