These two songs keep coming on my Sirius radio jogging my memory of 40 years ago.
The eastern world it is explodin',
violence flarin', bullets loadin',
you're old enough to kill but not for votin',
you don't believe in war, what's that gun you're totin',
and even the Jordan river has bodies floatin',
but you tell me over and over and over again my friend,
ah, you don't believe we're on the eve of destruction.
While I don't believe we are on the eve of destruction, there is something of great importance happening in the world at the moment. I do hope it culminates in not one more mother's son being killed.
