Goodwill 2012

There’s been plenty of talk in recent days of a war being over. Depends on your perspective, I think. I would imagine, if you’re in Iraq, your view of things may be that war is not over.

In any case, today is the day before Christmas, a time that should be one of peace and goodwill to others. John Lennon points the way with Happy Xmas (War Is Over), released in 1971 (when another war was going on).

“So this is Christmas, and what have you done? / Another year over and a new one just begun.”

(If you don’t see the video embedded above, watch it on YouTube.)

“A very merry Christmas and a happy New Year / Let’s hope it’s a good one / Without any fear.”

Wishing you a time of peace and goodwill.
