Some song recently reminded K of "Pipes of Peace," by Paul McCartney. He started singing it, then I started singing it, and now I can't get it out of my head. K asked if I had ever seen the video (which I haven't,) which depicts the Christmas Truce of 1914. Having never even heard of the Christmas Truce, I had to look it up. For those unfamiliar with the truce, you can read about it here.

As a romantic, I love the idea that soldiers could just lay down arms and refuse to fight. I wish that all soldiers everywhere could do the same, and there would be no more war. I suppose I dream of an impossible utopia, but what a lovely dream it is.
