Day 174 - Sunday 22nd June

"Imagine no possessions, I wonder if you can, No need for greed or hunger,A brotherhood of man, Imagine all the people, Sharing all the world,You may say that I'm a dreamer, But I'm not the only one, I hope someday you'll join us, And the world will live as one" - Imagine, John Lennon

Strong Lyrics, but lets imagine a day with no possesions, no war, no anger, what would today be like?

This is quite a depressing prompt because there is absolutely no chance of having no war or anger somewhere in the world. Every time you switch the news on, soldiers are being killed in Afghanistan, young teenagers are being stabbed or shot in the cities in England, in Zimbabwe people are being beaten or killed for supporting the opposition. None of it seems to end. I cannot imagine that the world is ever going to get better – it will just be another time, another place and another reason. So as I much as I could dream for the world to live as one, it will never happen. People are too power or money hungry for this to ever change.
This may seem selfish but at least I know in my little world there is no war or anger and that we are all living as one. And in ZoĆ«’s world, she is happy as long as she some gummy bear sweets.
