Last post of the day. Yesterday, I joined the group, "The Baghdad Diaries". I will get an opportunity to do some artwork in 1 of the books that is circulating around the world regarding the war in Iraq. I felt that by adding some of my artwork to the project, it would give me an opportunity to be a part of something that unites people from all over the world through art regardless of our gender, religion, nationality, ethnicity, and political party. As more dialogue takes place, one day, we will all realize that we have more in common than we think. But if we can't talk to one another, then like Bob Marley said many years ago:

Until the philosophy
Which hold one race
Superior and another inferior
Is finally
And permanently
Discredited
And abandoned
Everywhere is war
Me say war

That until there are no longer
First class
And second class citizens
Of any nation
Until the color of a man's skin
Is of no more significance
Than the colour of his eyes
Me say war

That until the basic human rights
Are equally
Guarantee to all
Without regard to race
And this a war

That until that day
The dream of lasting peace
World citizenship
Rule of international
Morality
Will remain in but a fleeting illusion
To be pursued
But never attained
Now everywhere is war
War

And until the ignoble
And unhappy regime
That hold our brothers in Angola
In Mozambique
South Africa
About human bondage
I have been toppled
Utterly destroyed
Well everywhere is war
Me say war

War in the east
War in the west
War up north
War down south
War, war
Rumors have a war

And until that day
The African Continent
Will not know peace
We Africans will fight
We find it necessary
And we know we shall win
As we are confident in the victory

Of good over evil
Of good over evil
Good over evil
War
War
War

"War"
1976

If we cannot come together as a united world to end these things, then we will continue to have war.
