Dona Nobis Pacem - Blog Blast For Peace

Sparks Of Insanity By Vinny "Bond" Marini Wednesday, June 06, 2007

Welcome to the third


The USA has not been this divided on a war since Vietnam.

Thankfully, this time our soldiers are not being blamed for
doing their jobs as they were some 40 years ago.

We need to stay strong, but we also need to find a way
to bring the young men and women fighting
this war back to their loved ones.

We need to work together to find solutions.


How did this all begin?
Find that out HERE


Simple lyrics...Powerful meaning

Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love.
There's nothing you can do that can't be done.
Nothing you can sing that can't be sung.
Nothing you can say but you can learn how to play the game
It's easy.

There's nothing you can make that can't be made.
No one you can save that can't be saved.
Nothing you can do but you can learn how to be in time
It's easy.

All you need is love, all you need is love,
All you need is love, love, love is all you need.

Love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love, love.
All you need is love, all you need is love,
All you need is love, love, love is all you need.

There's nothing you can know that isn't known.
Nothing you can see that isn't shown.
Nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be.
It's easy.

All you need is love, all you need is love,
All you need is love, love, love is all you need.
All you need is love (all together now)
All you need is love (everybody)
All you need is love, love, love is all you need.



Composers: John Lennon & Paul McCartney
