"I have seen war... I have seen war on land and sea. I have seen blood running from the wounded... I have seen the dead in the mud. I have seen cities destroyed... I have seen children starving. I have seen the agony of mothers and wives. I hate war." Franklin D. Roosevelt.

Imagine there's no countries

It isn't hard to do

Nothing to kill or die for

No religion too

Imagine all the people

Living in peace...


You may say I'm a dreamer

But I'm not the only one

I hope someday you'll join us

And the world will be as one...

"Imagine" by John Lennon. For the complete text and a few other timeless pieces look here.

And we never forget that ``it is a sin to kill a mockingbird.``

The "I Have A Dream Speech," as delivered by Dr. M.L. King Jr. on August 28, 1963
