  1. 2,ooo years and we’re still hoping for “Peace on Earth”. I have hope.
    Merry Christmas to all who celebrate, and a fine, peaceful day to everyone else.

    1. “This is our moment, here at the crossroads of time;
      We hope our children, carry our dreams down the line.
      They are the vintage: what kind of life will they live?
      Is this a curse, or a blessing, that we give?
      Sometimes I wonder: why are we so blind to fate?
      Without compassion, there can be no end to hate;
      No end to sorrow, caused by the same endless fears;
      Why can’t we learn from all we’ve been through…after two thousand years?”
      –Billy Joel
