PEACE....The ultimate need for the survival of humanity. Peace is a sign of growth, a sign of great community, with a power that calms and controls even nature. Well, turn on the news, wars are raging throughout the world, among neighbors, families, communities, countries, regions, religions, corporations, businesses, political factions, etc. The list is long and obviously our survival demands that we make a serious effort to preserve peace. It’s that time. Tick...tick...tick.
Peace signs were popular during anti-war demonstrations.in the 60s. Hey.... Peace, man!✌ Remember the hippies? their passion for the weed, and what's more important - their signs. Peace signs ☮ ✌ are still popular computer symbols that people have used for texting since the times when Unicode encoding was developed.
The peace sign was designed by artist Gerald Holtom in 1958. It was made for a march to support a Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament. A great cause, obviously one that makes sense for all life, one that continues today 60 years later.
To understand how Holtom designed the peace sign, you must first know what flag semaphore is. A person standing far away can use flags to signal letters and meanings. These signals are called semaphores. The semaphore signal for N is that both flags are held at a 45-degree angle downwards to create an upside down V. The semaphore signal for D is one flag pointing directly up and one flag pointing directly down, creating a straight vertical line. The letters N and D stand for Nuclear Disarmament.
Holtom simply superimposed the semaphore letters N and D, then put a circle around it, and voila, the Peace sign was made.
Only a few years after the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament began using the peace sign, it was adopted by the anti-war movement in the United States in the 1960s. The Peace symbol was in many ways a symbol of the 1960s. The sign lives on today, and is now internationally recognized as the symbol for peace.
The scars of war are unmanageable....
Holtom first designed the peace symbol as a Christian cross inside a circle, but the Christian community did not like the idea, so Holtom discarded the idea.
Why would the Christian community not want to be associated with a symbol for peace, when Jesus Christ is also known as The Prince Of Peace? Obviously deception played a role in the attempt to disassociate from a symbol, which represents a pillar in Christian faith. Eternal peace.
Seems like divine intervention ...The symbol still was created and has impacted the world, branded as the symbol for peace. Peace is an enormous blessing, and the promotion of it is key to our survival. The cause of peace must be reborn in this generation or we will all perish. Let’s reignite the peace movement of the 60s, and create a ☮ continent now, 60 yrs later. A source of ☮ content.

I believe that Time is just a shadow, a cast transitional stream of yesterday's light, waking up today into tomorrow. Tomorrow's shadow is today, for yesterday's dreamers.
I live a simple life, I like to plant seeds, pull weeds, prune trees, find a clear path for vines to survive…I never give up on a plant that is dying. I guess I'm always trying to be like Ruby the musician, my mother, who could turn a dry twig into a flower. She had the crazy green thumb. I've never seen her give up on the worst of her music students…she kept it simple, and the result was always a miracle. Rest in peace Ma.
I'm aspiring to do the same, in my music…simple pop melodies riding a variety of Afro/Caribbean rhythms, tribal but electronic, rhyming lyrics of truth, the root that bares fruit of liberation. It will never deceive us, only free us.
We are living in times where human blindness, is void of kindness now considered weakness. We are now the world of no feelings, in dyer need of healing, drowning away pain with entertainment, defying the gravity of reality, we board a temporary flight, away from our tears and fears, from the mess we never confess.... The duress of stress. Lets confess, we run from the sick and impaired, as if smeared with a species of feces, that must be washed off, bagged and dumped... Branded and stranded.
They used to be our loved ones, now they're just the forgotten ones.
One goal of TmeShadow is to assassinate stress, and raise world awareness to the power of peace, which is unsustainable without love, an unbreakable link. Peace and Love are the twins, that win, bringing us together.
