The brotherhood of man or smithereens.
The people of the world must pick out a thesis:
“Peace in the world, or the world in pieces!”

From “Talking Atom Blues/Old Man Atom” by Vern Partlow and Irving Bibo(sung by Sam Hinton, the Weavers, Sons of the Pioneers,

Dateline: April First Two Thousand Nine


“Last night I had the strangest dream


I’d ever had before


I dreamed the world had all agreed


To put an end to war.”








Some 2,000 antiwar protesters with torches form a peace symbol at Heroes Square in Budapest, Hungary, in 2005. The event marked the second anniversary of the U.S.-led invasion of Iraq.
