I was reading yesterday that Mr. Mandela invited his former jailer to his inaguration.

I hope someday to have wings like that.

Ooh great wall of love, build me a great wall of love
When the blind man sings about the peaceful things
You shout that it's not good enough
Ah we wait till daylight hours
Waiting for a sign from you
Golden temples concrete towers
Building mansions on the hillside next to you
In the city souls awaken bodies shaking
Oh pull me up let me see the view......
And to the hungry in the gutter
We've deprived them bread and butter
Always not enough
No not enough

Great wall of love, build me a great wall of love
When the blind man sings about the peaceful things
You shout that it's still not enough.

Ah well it's not the sound of ghosts I hear
It's the devil with his chainsaw
And I'll be running through the ghettos
Through the townships of Soweto
Always not enough
No not enough

Brothers missing, babies kissing
And the thing that got to you
Burning never turning next to you

Ooh great wall of love
Build me a great wall of love
When the blind man sings about the peaceful things
You shout that it's still not enough

So listen to me darling
They've got worries they've got troubles on their mind
And when you hear them reaching out
They're reaching out for something they can't find

Oh I believe one great day the rain will come
And wash this mess away
Oh I believe one great day the rain will come

They've got silver and diamonds
They've got paradise around them
They've got blue skies so clear
They've got their prisoner in a wagon
While the children chase the dragon
And the free bird files so clear
It files away
Fly fly fly away
Fly away
Oh you fly away

And may your sweet lips sing to me
Let the bells ring wherever freedom be
One babe is born and another one dies
There's people making love tonight
People making love tonight
Ah people making love tonight
People making love
People making love tonight
People making love
I can hear them reaching out
~Simple Minds (wall of love)

"the" song

I think the most thrilling thing I found out from way over here during that whole time was that when people got together to take a stand, something good actually happened, even if it had to take years and years and years.

From his 70th Birthday Concert...

^ Yesterday was the 201 day of the year, since it was a leap year..

What else from july 19? (Wikipedia for July19)

1963 - Joe Walker flies a North American X-15 to a record altitude of 106,010 metres (347,800 feet) on X-15 Flight 90. Exceeding an altitude of 100 km, this flight qualifies as a human spaceflight under international convention.
