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




'(What's So Funny 'Bout) Peace, Love & Understanding' - Words and Music by Nick Lowe
