I Protest!!! Vigorously!!!!

  • Pink captures President Bush's callous disregard with heart-rending accuracy. This song makes me cry every time I hear it.
  • Jackson Brown's new song is fabulous! Lives in the Balance truly touches on the choices facing America today.
  • An Arlo Guthrie classic! You'd be amazed at how it fits our modern war ethics.
  • Bruce Hornsby's finest. We are treating the Katrina survivors the same way.
  • By Phil Ochs. Not what you'd think. He wrote it following the murder of three civil rights workers in the mid '60's. Still pertinent today, I fear.
  • This one's by Lindsay Buckingham. All hail the 4th estate!
  • Song by the late, great Harry Chapin. It references Vietman, but remains pithy.
  • By Bright Eyes. One of the best protest songs to come along in years.
  • From the musical, 1776.
    Check it out - the reference may be Revolutionary War era, but the sentiment rocks!

Good to hear from you. I was worried.

Sad to have lost so many but glad, too, to have known them, to have been touched in some simple yet irrevocable way by all of them, to have had my life made more full by them. I would not be who I am without them, probably in ways I will never fathom even in my certainty.

Surely humanity is a river of life in which we all flow into each other. Individually we live and we die, but the river goes on and we will, all of us, always be part of it.

“Death closes all; but something ere the end,

Some work of noble note, may yet be done,

Not unbecoming men that strove with Gods.

The lights begin to twinkle from the rocks;

The long day wanes; the slow moon climbs; the deep

Moans round with many voices.

Tho' much is taken, much abides; and tho'

We are not now that strength which in old days

Moved earth and heaven, that which we are, we are”

And always will be. Of that I am certain.

Yes we've lost too many in recent months, and it's sad.

I too was worried and I'm glad to hear from you again. We'll all leave a legacy of our own sort honey, those who have known us will never forget us.

How are you doing? I wish you better health/health care in 2010!

Sister Faith

Jude

I TOO HAVE BEEN TOUCHED IN SOME IRREVOCABLE WAY , WHY EVEN MY NEIBORE SAID I WAS TOUCHED. YES YES THE RIVER OF LIFE IN WHICH WE ALL WILL BE PART OF COULD BE LIKE THE RIVER I CROSSED INTERING & LEAVING SUBIC BAY P.I......FATJAX
