Darkness cannot…

Quote

Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” – Martin Luther King, Jr

What Syria did was wrong.  It was an atrocity.  But, I think Martin Luther King said it best, “Darkness cannot drive out darkness…” Why can’t we be the initial aggressor for peace? Why not give money to assist  the neighboring countries that are housing the refugees? Peace can get so ugly you forget what it looks like.  But, it has been there all along.  Let’s find it.  Let’s find the peace, for humanity’s sake.

Casualties of War

Verse 1:

Politicians flex with all their might

But won’t pick up a gun and get down and fight

Passin’ billions to spend on war supplies

When the inner city gangs still grow and thrive

What are we fighting for?

What are we fighting?

 

Chorus:

Another life gone,casualty of war

What are we dying for?

Kids enlist cuz there’s no hope at home

And the killing goes on…

Verse 2:

Thousands wounded in hospital beds

Return home just like they said

Families strugglin’ to put food on the table

Now their soldiers are only half able

What are we fighting for?

What are we fighting?

Chorus:

Another life gone, casualty of war

What are we dying for?

Kids enlist cuz there’s no hope at home

And the killing goes on

Verse 3 (invert)

What about all the innocent who died

Motherless children walk the streets and cry

Did we ever really try to negotiate?

Can we lay down our arms and communicate?

What are we fighting for?

What are we fighting?

Chorus:

Another life gone, casualty of war

What are we dying for?

Kids enlist cuz there’s no hope at home

And the killing goes on (twice)

What are we fighting for?

And the killing goes on….
