If only nations could get together to dance and sing in competitive challenge under their national colors instead of committing endless wars in endless war economies that help only war industrial corporations get rich. There's plenty of renewable energy out there that can bring in wealth without devastating Earth and its people. Years ago Aristide Briand (Nobel Peace Laureate, father of the Kellog-Briand Peaee Pact) told Llyd George in WW I:
"War is much too serious a thing to be left to military men."
Briand brought about the peaceful separation of church and state in France.
VICTORY FOR INTERNATIONAL PEACE
Helene Smith, author of Cry For Peace www.createspace.com/3343775
Stranger, pause and think of me,
Who once did move and breathe like thee,
Who knew the grass and tree-lined sky.
And now in eyeless dust must lie.'
(old tombstone epitaph)
So dance, sing–happy be;
Waves of violence bring on a raging sea.
Leave wars behind of dogmatic fate,
Revenge is poison called blow-back hate.
