The song and video above, by Eric Colville, "imagines war in the past tense, after humanity realizes the folly of it all." Eric writes, "The idea for this song came about after reading Dr. Seuss’s The Lorax to my son and wishing the story offered a more hopeful lesson than the “if only” written on the rock at the end. Around the same time, I was watching Ken Burns and Lynn Novick’s PBS documentary, “The War.” The film’s personal narratives moved me deeply and left me astonished at the senseless destruction of so many lives. I imagined how wonderful it would be if I could respond to my son’s questions about war by explaining that it was a terrible thing of the past rather than something my own country was waging in a growing number of places. With all this fresh in my consciousness, I somehow arrived at three chords that were hopeful and uplifting, and I found myself singing “the end of war” as I played them."
Please everyone, do all you can to make the words of this song become reality.
