Make Music Not War!

I heard the news today, oh boy – The sale of liquor is banned in Baghdad.

Okay, I could live with that, but music and theater will be banned as well.

No Music? No Theater?

No Life!

As my friend, Jordan, put it, “Take away my music and I’d probably kill someone!”


I have long held the idealistic (I love that word) belief that if we only provided instruments instead of guns we could create armies of marching bands!

I wonder, how would the world look, feel and sound if music were currency? “I’ll hand-knit you a sweater if you write me a song”…or, “Come for dinner and bring your sax.”

Couldn’t we turn up the heat on those cold winter nights with lively music and dance? I’m even wondering if we could generate electricity with music.

Call me a dreamer…but I’m not the only one!
