SHAPE OF THINGS TO COME ~ http://www.nytimes.com/interactive/2016/01/01/opinion/Kalman-Meyerowitz-Op-Art.html?emc=edit_th_20160101&nl=todaysheadlines&nlid=65700837&_r=0
1. In her final statement of the last 2015 debate, Hillary Clinton concluded …
- “May the Force be with you.”
- “We need to discuss the restroom issue.”
- “Have I mentioned I’m a grandmother?”
Despite our furtive fears
We welcome the smiling year of HOPE.
Democracy and the Internet are spreading,
Global poverty has been cut in half –
Never have ordinary people, like you and me,
Had more power to face challenges
We’re poised on the edge between
Our oldest fears of terror and war
And our deepest dreams of peace.
And be the PEACE we want to see –
It all depends on us, for we peace- lovers
Are the largest global community!
By its ugly ears and drown it into
The vast ocean of violent history forever.
And hope is the game changer in life.
Hope is the wing on which we rise
It is the map of how and where to fly
To throw Terror and War from the top of the cliff
Into the historical stormy ocean.
The golden sunbeam of Hope gladly waltzing
To the music of a moving Chopin Waltz
Toward twinkling Global Peace.
