A REASON FOR LAUGHTER

With so much negativity going down across Earth, humans need a reason to feel good about life on Earth. With so much human-on-human hatred, fighting, and killing going down across Earth each day, humans need a reason to be hopeful about the future. Humans need to know that better days lie ahead for humankind just over the horizon at the rainbow's edge. Humans need a reason to smile. Humans need a reason to laugh.

As for those humans who choose to actively engage in hatred, fighting, and killing each day, they need to go somewhere and sit down with all of that mess. They need to chill out and refrain from engaging in that type of mess. One thing is certain, and it is this: Earth would be a better planet on which to live if humans did not engage in that sort of mess.

It is okay and normal for humans (and nations) to disagree with one another, but humans (and nations) should opt to disagree with one another with civility. Judicial or court systems, arbitration forums, and assorted dispute-resolution mechanisms exist to provide humans with ways to resolve their disputes and differences civilly, peacefully, fairly, and without recourse to hatred, violence, bloodshed, and loss of life.

A REASON FOR SADNESS

Unfortunately, life on Earth is not perfect. Life on Earth is not utopia. For, wherever there exists an abundance of human happiness on Earth, there also exists more than enough misery, hurt, and pain. In acknowledging the pain, the next bloc of videos delves into the B (as in Blues) aspect of R&B.

R&B TRIBUTE, SIDE B

Yes, it would be an ideal and a grand accomplishment if humans achieved a state of Heaven on Earth for the living to enjoy each day, but Heaven on Earth has continued to elude the grasp of humans as of 2016. Humans still appear to have a long way to go before they grasp it, too.
