Blessed Day

I dream of the blessed day
when humanity awakens
from its terrible nightmare
and begins to fight for peace
with as much ferocity, tenacity,
and heroism as we’ve fought our wars.
–Russ Towne

      Our numbers are growing. I believe there will come a day when voices for peace will be so firm and insistent that they’ll be able to silence the drums of war.

      War is the ultimate crime against humanity.
