Atop the clouds, I gaze down
The wreck that is your mortal world
Lifting mists lay bare the ashes
Of a humanity pillaged and torn

Reap the effects of your own folly
Pay the price of your blindness
Pitting man against brother,
Till neither is left to cross swords

Mistrust, hatred, revenge, war
There’s never a basis, never a purpose
I was blind when I was in it
My bleeding eyes are open now
alas, too late..

So long as there are men there will be wars
~Albert Einstein

Mankind must put an end to war, or war will put an end to mankind.

~John F. Kennedy, 1961

War does not determine who is right - only who is left.

~Bertrand Russell

Men are at war with each other because each man is at war with himself.

~Francis Meehan

Reading the paper on a hectic Wednesday morning, Watching TV on a leisurely Sunday evening, surfing the web in a mid-Monday break, even a casual discussion around the office cooler… its just depressing news everywhere! Wars, death.. well, I guess it just got to me - again, hence the war rants above..

Its a control is always that and until humanity finds ways to be happy without power, this will go on.
