John Denver - Last Night I Had the Strangest Dream

April 24, 1971 video of John Denver singing "The Strangest Dream" at a peace march in Washington DC. The song, written by Ed McCurdy about 1950, became one of the anthems of the Vietnam war era. If you have trouble playing here, click to see it on YouTube.

* Why "A Million Copies"? It's a significant number; an audacious goal. It's a phrase perhaps best defined by Ed McCurdy's lyric in "Last Night I had the Strangest Dream"; "...and when the paper was all signed, and a million copies made..." Listen to John Denver sing these words on this page.

HEREBY RESOLVES that all people shall enjoy the sovereign right to declare that their responsibilities as citizens extend beyond their respective nations and are free to join with other concerned people in a declaration of shared planetary responsibility and common World Citizenship.  Also, we pledge, as World Citizens, to strive to establish permanent peace based on just world law and to use the world’s resources in service to the Human Family.

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that, in recognition of our obligations as World Citizens, all the nations of the world shall be encouraged to fly the flag of the United Nations, along with their national flag, on the grounds of their respective capitals and other major public buildings.
