Nazım Hikmet Ran-The little girl (aka hiroshima girl) Joan Baez singing.

Nazım Hikmet Ran-The little girl (aka hiroshima girl) Joan Baez singing.
Its one of Nazım's poems composed by Zülfü Livaneli and sang by various famous musician.
It makes me cry everytime..

here is the translated lyrics ..
It is me knocking at your door
- at how many doors i've been
But no one can see me
Since the dead are invisible.

I died at Hiroshima
that was ten years ago
I am a girl of seven
Dead children do not grow.

First my hair caught fire
then my eyes burnt out
I became a handful of ashes
blown away by the wind.

I don't wish anything for myself
for a child who is burnt to cinders
cannot even eat sweets.

I'm knocking at your doors
aunts and uncles, to get your signatures
so that never again children will burn
and so they can eat sweets.

From Joan Baez..



Quote:Many that live deserve death. Some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them, Frodo? Do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment. Even the very wise cannot see all ends.

How disgusting....so your parent wouldn't allow you to have 'the sweet things in life' how very very sad...

Bourgeois nonsense.

Yes we are very good at killing our own species....very good. Don't need Joan Baez to tell us that

Yes, sad song.

But America did tell the japanese to knock it off, we weren't fucking around anymore.

Didn't the japanese have the theological view the emperor was part divine or divinely appointed or some other such nonsense?

It was logically necessary? No. It was morally necessary? No. It was egotistically necessary? Yes.
