world child vs. war child

i don't know if anyone's noticed, but i've completely avoided the subject of war in my journal thus far. yesterday on the way to school i was slowing down for a stoplight and i noticed a dead opossum on the side of the road. he was lying on his back and one arm was crossed over his chest and his tongue looked as though it was falling out of his mouth. at that moment, i got very sad. i thought about all the deaths this war will cause. i don't think war is the only answer, though desperate times do call for desperate measures. think about the freedoms that you enjoy in this country. our country fought to get these freedoms throughout all the ages. i don't believe in senseless bloodshed, but the entire world doesn't see things through my eyes. with war on everyone's mind, i think that people are forgetting all the beautiful things and the freedoms that we are able to enjoy.

last night i saw sigur ros @ the 9:30 club. sometimes i really do think that music is the key to world peace. maybe they should try playing ( ) and see what happens.
