I do not know how easy it is to be able to explain to future generations what “Peace” means, especially when wars are still raging.
What exactly should we celebrate today, when bombs fall on the heads of innocents, only under the pretext of “Peace“.
For which “Peace” to talk about…
And how many more ???
Unfortunately, as long as people have material goods as their main goal, war will be the only option …
As Mahatma Gandhi once said, “on the day when the power of love overcomes the love of power, the world will know peace.”
I don’t know if that’s true or if it’s ever going to be true, but I do know that music is a good history lesson for generations to come.
As long as there is the will to seek to find the meaning behind each verse, but also to take lessons from the harm that we do to each other, sacrificing everything on the altar of interest.
We chose some songs for this day, which carry anything but optimistic messages.
It is probably another proof that history is circling and repeating itself…
Canceling the true meaning of “Peace” and leaves it an empty word!!!
