Grieving Souls in Solidarity - Stand Together Against Hatred Without Prejudice

Echoing Mulcair's comment on the brutal attacks on Canadian souls earlier today (http://goo.gl/M5Zwwo), "These acts were driven by hatred, but also designed to drive us to hate. They will not. We will stand up, we will stand together. We will persevere and we will prevail." Trudeau said, "We will walk forward together, not apart." Harper commented, "While today has been without question a difficult day, I have no doubt Canadians will pull together with the kind of firm solidarity that has seen our country through many challenges."

May their wise words for "solidarity", "....walk forward together", "we will stand together" come true without prejudice like John Lennon's immortal song "Imagine":

Imagine there's no heaven
It's easy if you try

No hell below us
Above us only sky
Imagine all the people
Living for today
Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion, too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you will join us
And the world will be as one
Imagine no possessions
I wonder if you can
No need for greed or hunger
A brotherhood of man
Imagine all the people
Sharing all the world
You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you will join us
And the world will live as one
