We are trying to End the War

machinegun“We are trying to End the War” Show Part III of Post View and the 92 Days of Sorrow Featuring:The Machine Gun Disco Dance of the Wild! 92 days of sorrows… is nothing compared to reality!Everyone went up in arms! and January was not even half way over! It hurts and it is so sad for the families left behind… What can we say? We feel for you? What a disappointment! It could have been my son… brother… father… spouse. It could have been me… But we are already filled with grief! Even in all of it’s young innocence…  it turned out to be tragic… these past few days have been hell in our sleepy town! So fragile it is, so easily destroyed! Our children!  In our own backyards! and now that we are sending more troops away… It’s a continuation… with more difficulties and new stories of horror. and it is not yet February… How sad for us all! What is the purpose? Will we live to fulfill ours? Will we ever live in peace and love? Can we? And how can we “celebrate” the New Year? Aren’t we supposed to dance and sing and jump around? For the new year? … and for the ending of the war? … show? Right? That is how we do it when it ends? no? But it didn’t end…  and life went on! And it was horrible! It is not that easy… as a friggin’ art show! So… the horror remains… layered on top of our dysfunctional reality… against joy and innocence, here and abroad… while we reek havoc on each other! Willfully, foolishly… Oh Well.  We have to try to experience a glimmer of … the dance… the Victory Dance? Not “victory over another” dance…  but “victory over the sorrow!” … the ending of the war mentality? The ending of guns and stupidity and hate and selfishness and bombs and destruction… Can time heal these wounds? It doesn’t seem so sometimes. The pain keeps coming back… and we keep messing up! Can we contribute toward change?  Will we have the chance? Do we even believe in redemption? peace
