Wouldn’t it be Amazing?

Wouldn’t it be amazing if we all decided that all weapons of mass destruction—especially the most damaging, long-term ones that poison the environment for thousands of years and make people suffer needlessly for generations upon generations—were a really stupid idea?

And that we would have nothing to do with an unsustainable and enormously harmful technology that not only takes more energy, money, and time to clean up than the energy it could potentially provide; but for the limited benefits of which we burden all of our succeeding generations with the Sisyphean task of trying to dispose of lethal and carcinogenic radioactivity, when no known containment medium exists?

And wouldn’t it be amazing if, instead, we looked to the sun, the wind, and the water for our earth-friendly needs?

Wouldn’t it also be amazing if we tuned out of the paranoid drivel that makes us suspect and hate other people, and, instead of assuming the worst and making enemies, we assumed the best and made friends?

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one …
