As I watch the terrible scenes unfold in Syria and the political arguments for and against what the politicians describe euphemistically as “strikes” this simple but beautiful song came to mind. Its message is simple and hopeful.

 

Last Night I Had The Strangest Dream

Last night I had the strangest dream

I ever dreamed before

I dreamed the world had all agreed

To put an end to war

I dreamed I saw a mighty room

The room was filled with men

And the paper they were signing said

They’d never fight again

And when the papers all were signed

And a million copies made

They all joined hands and bowed their heads

And grateful prayers were prayed

And the people in the streets below

Were dancing round and round

And guns and swords and uniforms

Were scattered on the ground

Last night I had the strangest dream

I ever dreamed before

I dreamed the world had all agreed

To put an end to war

 

Song Written by Ed McCurdy and performed by Simon & Garfunkel
