you're killing your brother

Bloggers Unite

am joining bloggers around the world in condemning human rights violation. there's a lot of things i can say about this as a friend of mine was gunned down for his beliefs. but i would rather have bob marley spread the word that we should stop this unnecessary war as we are only killing our own brothers.

war by bob marley
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 color of his eyes
me say war

that until the basic human rights are equally
guaranteed to all, without regard to race
dis a war

that until that day
the dream of lasting peace, world citizenship
rule of international morality
will remain but a fleeting illusion
to be pursued, but never attained
now everywhere is war, war

and until the ignoble and unhappy regimes
that hold our brothers in angola, in mozambique,
south africa sub-human bondage
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, rumours of 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, good over evil, good over evil
good over evil, good over evil, good over evil


everytime i hear this song (of course using the headphones borrowed from halley), i always think about our brothers and sisters around the world being gunned down, dying of hunger, lacking food, and ill-treated. we need to stop this madness. sure, attaining world peace is almost impossible but we have to work towards attaining that goal. after all, we might not be africans, but we have to be confident in the victory of good over evil.
