Letters to the Editor

I was privileged to attend a concert by Joan Baez in Dublin last night. Her demeanour and songs of peace, love, kindness and compassion provided a very brief respite from the destroyed world we now live in.

A world that this year has ascended to unprecedented heights of madness, violence, crime, cruelty, terrorism and absolute EVIL. It was clear that her beautiful rendition of 'Imagine' - with amended lyrics - enabled the audience, just for a brief moment, to believe that we were indeed living in a world where everyone cared about each other. But, sadly, the reality is the opposite.
