Peace Has To Be Here Somewhere

forgive quote

It’s Monday (Tax Day) as I write this, and despite the enormous check that I just sent off to the state of Idaho this morning it’s been a pretty good day. Got plenty of sleep, ate a good breakfast, my son and I got adjusted by the chiropractor, went to yoga with a good friend, nap time went off without a hitch, everything going along swimmingly.

I came to my computer ready to finally work on a post that I’ve been ruminating about and putting off for awhile. Armed with a double caffeinated cappuccino I flipped open my laptop and took a quick peek at Facebook before getting into my post. That one last bit of procrastination revealed that at the finish line of today’s Boston Marathon there were 2 bombs that went off and many people have been injured. Well, #$%^!!!!

***It’s now a few hours since I started this post and rather than post the rant that I initially came up with I decided that John Lennon says it a whole lot better.***

Imagine there’s no heaven
It’s easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today…

Imagine there’s no countries
It isn’t hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life 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 no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world…

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 live as one

~John Lennon – Imagine
