A Season of Darkness

This has been a Season of Darkness. 

Today, December 10, 2015 is International Human Rights Day.
It is time for this world to honor Article 1 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights:

ALL HUMAN BEINGS ARE BORN FREE & EQUAL IN DIGNITY AND RIGHTS

Freedom of Speech & Expression
Freedom of Worship
Freedom from Want
Freedom from Fear

As the news, day after day, has been full of so much pain and horror, 
this song has been my constant companion:

'As I walk this wicked world,
searching for light in the darkness of insanity,
I ask myself - is all hope gone?
Is there only pain, hatred & misery?

And each time I feel like this inside,
there's one thing I want to know.
What's so funny 'bout

PEACE, LOVE & UNDERSTANDING
