A song came to mind, an old song that never fails to bring tears to my eyes, that describes how I feel today.
The song was just as appropriate in the mid-60’s as it is today. It is a song for the ages and the words will always be relevant.
Because the world will always be split between good and bad; love and hate.
And while you’re listening to the song, maybe read some of the many comments below it on YouTube.

One comment is from a soldier who heard the song as he was being air lifted to a medical facility, and it resonated with him. War versus love.
“I remember listening to this on base in quang tri after I was airlifted out of Khe Sahn on April 18, 1968 (I had taken a mortar round in the leg but luckily didn’t need an amputation) thinking about all the friends I lost over there makes me tear up every time I hear this song”

There is nothing wrong with feeling the need to seek a little tranquility in this world. Especially the world as it is now. With so much sadness and unnecessary cruelty.
I can only imagine the young injured man being air lifted out of a senseless war and hearing this song in the background. It lifted him up and gave him hope.
It is a bit dark outside. Maybe it’s about to storm.
I think I want to click over and listen to that song again. I just really need to hear it.
Tomorrow morning I have my bi-annual doctor’s check up. The appointment is for the time when I usually post, so I will probably post later in the day.
