All We Are Saying . . .

Full-page ad in Sunday’s New York Times:

It’s signed, “Love and Peace from John & Yoko.”

The ad directs readers to the website http://www.IMAGINEPEACE.com, which contains this Holiday Message From Yoko Ono:

Dear Friends

The WAR IS OVER! campaign was once a tiny seed, which spread and covered the Earth. John and I believed it helped many people to stop their wars. Since then, every WAR IS OVER! campaign has impacted the world as powerfully as the first one.

Start yours tomorrow, and you will see that it spreads and covers the world very fast and, meanwhile, makes you a Small Pebble Person.

Small Pebble People are people who know that small pebbles, when they’re dropped in the ocean, will immediately affect the ocean of the whole wide world.

Don’t throw a big stone. It scares people and creates repercussions.

Just drop a small pebble.
We’ll keep doing it. Together.
That’s how the world gets changed…by Small Pebble People.
We change, and the world changes.

Happy Holidays.

I love you!
yoko

Cut to: Pres. Obama’s Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech about “just wars.”

Compare and contrast in clear idiomatic English.
