Craig Joan Two Lives for Peace Author:Eliot Asinof On October 15, 1969 (Moratorium Day), two nice 17-year-old kids killed themselves so that people would think about peace and love. Their town hushed it up. The 24 last notes they left were never delivered and never made public, except for this poem. — This is the true sory of Craig and Joan of Blackwood, New Jersey, who couldn't live in the world... more » the way it is, and hoped by thier deaths to change it.
Why? Because we see that people just won't do and say what they feel and you can't just tell someone to. It seems that people are only touched by death and maybe people will be touched enough to look into thir lives and if just one person is touched enough to do something constructive and peaceful with their life then maybe our death was worth it. WHY- because we love our fellow man enough to sacrifice ourlives so that they will try to find ecstacy in just being alive. Love and Peace, Graig Badiali« less
