Track Name: Stop The Killing
A plea: STOP the killing In Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Nigeria, Ukraine, South Sudan, Israel/Gaza, Somalia, Yemen . . . not to mention the good old USA.
Track Name: Necessary Evil
"War may sometimes be a necessary evil. But no matter how necessary, it is always an evil, never a good. We will not learn how to live together in peace by killing each other's children." - Jimmy Carter
Track Name: The Conscientious Objector
WAR will exist until that distant day when the conscientious objector enjoys the same reputation and prestige that the warrior does today.
- John F. Kennedy
Track Name: The Pacifist
. . . believes that any violence, including war, is unjustifiable under any circumstances, and that all disputes should be settled by peaceful means
Track Name: WAR - What is it good for?
The US federal price tag for the Iraq war is about 4.4 trillion dollars. The wars have been accompanied by violations of human rights and civil liberties, in the US and abroad. The wars did not result in inclusive, transparent, and democratic governments in Iraq or Afghanistan.
Track Name: The Violence of 2015
The year 2015 was one of relentless news, much of it horrific, disheartening and brutal. A year of turmoil and drama that showed the worst of humanity. A year filled with beheadings, plane crashes and natural disasters.

AND THERE IS THIS:
Michael Brown NO INDICTMENT
Eric Garner NO INDICTMENT
Freddie Gray NO INDICTMENT
Sandra Bland NO INDICTMENT
Tamir Rice NO INDICTMENT
Track Name: Crime and Punishment
“PAIN AND SUFFERING are always inevitable for a large intelligence and a deep heart.”

― Fyodor Dostoyevsky, Crime and Punishment
Track Name: Fear Itself
Make friends with our own fear rather than blaming others.

"We will always blame and condemn those we feel are responsible for wars and social injustice, without recognizing the degree of violence in ourselves. We must work on ourselves as well as with those we condemn if we wish to move towards peace."
— Thich Nhat Hanh, nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize by Martin Luther King Jr.
Track Name: Agree To Disagree
"The people to fear are not those who disagree with you, but those who disagree with you and are too cowardly to let you know."
- Napoleon Bonaparte
Track Name: Conquest
“Most of the major states of history owed their existence to conquest. The conquering peoples established themselves, legally and economically, as the privileged class of the conquered country . . .The real purpose of socialism is to overcome and advance beyond the predatory phase of human development.”

-ALBERT EINSTEIN
