My name is Al. Do I look like an “Al” ? I regard myself as a citizen of the world who just happens to have been born in England, just happens to be a white Caucasian, just happens to have had a half-decent education. I’ve always been a man of the people – a champion of and for the people. And sometimes, due to responsibilities I am now largely free of, I too kept my mouth shut. But not any more. It’s the “getting older – done that” feeling. I don’t want to hurt anybody’s feelings but it is time for me to stand up and say what I believe – occassionally. I grew up in the 60’s when we believed that we could and would change the world with love. I still dream that if enough people man the barricades with flowers we can still do it….but….are there now too many agendas? Or is it that we know more about them now? I just want to shake hands with as many people from around the world as possible and say “Yes, the people are a peace loving people and we can all live together happily ever after.”…….You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one………..
