What if they gave a war and everyone brought crayons?

I was so inspired after hearing that Neil Young has just come out with a new song "Let's Impeach the President" that I immediately got out my crayons and decided to Make Art not War the latest theme for my new designs on Planet Calamari. Since it was also the anniversary of the Columbine shootings the idea of Crayons not Guns came to me. Wouldn't it be great if all we had to worry about was what color crayons our kids had in their backpacks? What if our world leaders each had a box of crayons and had to solve their differences by drawing their solutions instead of fighting?

Could it be that a box of crayolas could be the answer to World Peace?

All we are saying is....Give Art a Chance!

i like th idea, but maybe fingerpaint would be more appropriate for our braniac world leaders.

It is a great idea. The image of world leaders on the floor coloring with crayons is fun, though I sometimes wonder if they're up for something that difficult. You should see the shirts and stuff too. She's a wild one.

CRAYONS....every person should have a box in their brief case or pocket- book!
Unfortunately, fingerpaints are still a messy solution to our worlds problems, sorry Bill, that's just my opinion and as I have often been, I could be wrong on this one too! LOL
But art instead of war sounds GREAT!!!!!
Love ya for thinking of this Jeanie...let's spread the word!
