As I walk through This wicked world Searchin' for light in the darkness of insanity. I ask myself Is all hope lost? Is there only pain and hatred, and misery?

And each time I feel like this inside, There's one thing I wanna know: What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding? Ohhhh What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding?

And as I walked on Through troubled times My spirit gets so downhearted sometimes So where are the strong And who are the trusted? And where is the harmony? Sweet harmony.

'Cause each time I feel it slippin' away, just makes me wanna cry. What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding? Ohhhh What's so funny 'bout peace love & understanding?

So where are the strong? And who are the trusted? And where is the harmony? Sweet harmony.

The language of PEACE should be adopted when interacting on the issues of war around the world (middle east, Ukraine, etc )

We can not resolve war by joining in the verbal violence that currently dominates international dialogue.

We can identify the war mongers/verbal violence purveyors, but should focus our energies on pushing PEACE.

Cease fires, Diplomacy, Negotiation, compromise, international tribunals, disarmament,

These elements of de-escalation should be reflected in our conversation.

The Occupy movement certainly illustrates the power of simply changing the dialogue of an issue.

(responded here hoping you actually agreed, not because I thought you disagreed with peace., ,,,,,,,,, Peace!)

A little inspiration, perhaps. Hope your day turned out okay, 99.

As to your statement above...I couldn't agree more. :-)

Thx for replying peacefully

Ahhhh, the personification of peace, both song and artist.

Who would, or could argue with Yusuf Islam?

Thanks, 99. For that very spirited and infectious song...and for your much needed peaceful language the world (and this forum!) needs right now...maybe more than ever before.

When I'm feeling particularly peaceful, I've gotta have some Eva Cassidy.

Another peaceful train song
