Hey friends

With all the doom and gloom around here,i just wanted to share with you this wonderful song.

It's the classic Louis Armstrong song "what a wonderful world".This version has a spoken intro by mr.Armstrong himself and when i heard it,although it was made back in the 70's(this version-1968 the first release) the message is still strong until today.Seems like although 40 years have passed ,the world hasn't changed a bit(war,hunger and pollution).

"Some of you young folks been saying to me,"
Hey Pops, what you mean 'What a wonderful world'?

How about all them wars all over the place? You call them wonderful?

And how about hunger and pollution? That ain't so wonderful either."

Well how about listening to old Pops for a minute.
Seems to me, it aint the world that's so bad but what we're doin' to it. And all I'm saying is, see, what a wonderful world it would be if only we'd give it a chance. Love baby, love. That's the secret, yeah. If lots more of us loved each other, we'd solve lots more problems. And then this world would be better.

That's wha' ol' Pops keeps saying."

Louis A. was a wise man.
And it doesn't take much to get out in the country on a nice day and see how right he really is.
