So this is Christmas
And what have you done?
Another year over
And a new one just begun ...

... John Lennon (1940-1980), Artist, Poet, Songwriter, Peace Activist, Accidental Physicist (read the lyrics to Glass Onion), and a European of some note.

So this is Christmas
I hope you had fun
The near and the dear ones
The old and the young

And so this is Christmas
For weak and for strong
For rich and for poor ones
The road is so long

And so happy Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let's Hope it's a good one
Without any fear

So this is Christmas
For black and for white
For yellow and red ones
Let's stop all the fight

War is over
If you want it
 War is over

Except war will never be over as long as there are arms merchants who make considerable amounts of money, and who use that money to grease the bank accounts of politicians.

IF AND ONLY IF their money were spent to do something POSITIVE, like establish a Lunar Colony, we'd all be better off and our species would have a fighting chance of survival.


MORTALITY and GREED: Not always a good thing.


Nice dream anyway, John. We still miss you.
