A Song About the World Putting an End to War

Here is a song that Chihiro Otsuka shared with me, one that her daughter sang at the peace choir of her school. I was deeply moved by these lyrics and thought that it was the world adopting 'and practicing' the Article 9 of the Japanese Constitution. I visualize this song in my meditation. Is it something that one can only imagine? If everybody imagines it, it becomes reality. Thank you Chihiro for sharing this beautiful song! Love to the world, Satoko

Here is the song.

Last Night I Had The Strangest Dream (Words and music by EdMcCurdy)

Last night I had the strangest dream
I'd ever dreamed before
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war

I dreamed I saw a mighty room
Filled with women and men
And the paper they were signing said
They'd never fight again

And when the paper was all signed
And a million copies made
They all joined hands and bowed their heads
And grateful pray'rs were prayed

And the people in the streets below
Were dancing 'round and 'round
While swords and guns and uniforms
Were scattered on the ground

Last night I had the strangest dream
I'd never dreamed before
I dreamed the world had all agreed
To put an end to war.
