dont vote

wtf you might well ask.

just my advice, don't get involved in that kind of thing myself, as it only encourages them.

However, I don't live in the USA, and if I did then of course I would have to totally go against my own advice and queue up early doors to make sure I got my big fat X in the Obama box....

You know it makes sense.

Now, if you can please take the time, and go and read these diaries from a wonderful lady who was on the recent trip I was on, you know the one, its all over these pages.
She has managed to pen such beautifully eloquent pieces to acompany each of the visits we made to different people and places, so do yourself a real favour and go read and absorb, please, .... tell her john the big sent you......

So, the song playing now here is "Peace on Earth" by U2, and Bono, who was invited to come on the trip, and said he would have loved to, but the boys in the band had him locked up in some studio trying to finish some record they are doing at the moment...... maybe next time.... hopefully....

Heaven on Earth, we need it now
I'm sick of all of this hanging around
Sick of sorrow, sick of the pain
I'm sick of hearing again and again
That there's gonna be peace on Earth

Where I grew up there weren't many trees
Where there was we'd tear them down
And use them on our enemies
They say that what you mock
Will surely overtake you
And you become a monster
So the monster will not break you

And it's already gone too far
Who said that if you go in hard
You won't get hurt?

Jesus can you take the time
To throw a drowning man a line
Peace on Earth
Tell the ones who hear no sound
Whose sons are living in the ground
Peace on Earth
No whos or whys
No one cries like a mother cries
For peace on Earth
She never got to say goodbye
To see the color in his eyes
Now he's in the dirt
Peace on Earth
