#Cyberpeacefare #War

"War, moreover, displays as do few undertakings the grim and the great in human nature. It produces death and destruction while generating innovation in organization, technology, ethics and law,  It unleashes cruelty and exposes cowardice, while inspiring camaraderie and courage.

#Cyberpeacefare "Let There Be Peace On Earth" /Song Lyrics

"Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.

Let there be peace on earth

The peace that was meant to be

With God our Father

Brothers all are we

Let me walk with my brother

In perfect harmony

Let Peace begin with Me."

The American Dream/James Truslow Adams

"The American Dream .......has been a dream of being able to grow to the fullest development, as man and woman, unhampered by barriers which had been slowly erected in older civilizations, unrepressed by social orders which had developed for the benefit of classes rather than for the single human being of any and every class.  And that dream has been realized more fully in actual life here than anywhere else, though very imperfectly even among ourselves"
