Marvin gives me chills because he sang from the heart. There will never be anyone like him. I think of many great memories with friends and parties. His song is for today as well.

How many will live and let love die? How many will be against the other? You cannot find peace until you are yourself peaceful. Stop fighting your own. We are only here a short time, why not use that time to love? Why are we taught to be against and fight instead of using love to understand? That is the way of the future? Is that our evolution? I might be short timed but I am a lover, not a fighter. Join today.
