In One World

So much resentment, so much at stake
And I really don’t remember who was the first to say 
In one world
In one village
In one home
Let us live together

In One World – by David Rovics

From David Rovics’ 2002 CD, Hang A Flag In The Window, possibly my favorite Rovics CD. Here is what Rovics wrote about In One World: "Based on a story I read in the Palestine Monitor about a Palestinian refugee from the city of Haifa who went to visit the home of his birth and met the Jewish refugees from Iraq who were living there."

In one world. May it be so.
