If We Only Have Love, We Can Melt all the Guns

Saturday, December 29th, 2007

My Wish for 2008 is for

Love, Understanding and Peace Among Nations of Our World. 

My husand Al and I sang “If We Only Have Love” with the Solivita  “Guys and Dolls Chorus” in their December 2007 Concert.

One verse from Jacques Brel’s “If We Only Have Love” brought to mind a recycling project I had read about a long time ago. Artist Bradley Mc Callum had converted confiscated guns into manhole covers. His art project on gun violence was exhibited at The Wadsworth Atheneum in Hartford Connecticut.

If we only have love
We can melt all the guns
And then give the new world
To our daughters and sons
If we only have love
Then Jerusalem stands
And then death has no shadow
There are no foreign lands
