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.

Man's Next Giant Leap:
World Peace Through World Citizenship

Film (~30 min.) documenting the 1971 project leading to a
Minnesota Declaration of World Citizenship.
Produced by United Nations Association of Minnesota
.


 

This vintage 1971 film (converted from 16mm) was hosted by Minnesota celebrity Bill Carlson (d. 3/1/08) and documents the phenomenal accomplishment of producing a Minnesota Declaration of World Citizenship. This declaration was signed by the most prominent state political leaders of the day - from the Democratic Governor, Wendell Anderson to the Chairman of the Minnesota Republican Party, David Krogseng (see signatories), as well as a number of national leaders and the UN Secretary General (see copy of original -pdf).

If you would like to see a project like this initiated for the 21st Century, take a look at a sample declaration and sign a petition here.
