A VIDEO FOR MEMORIAL DAY
The words to the song in the video at left are by an unknown author, and were discovered in
a hospital in the Philippines during WWII after the country was liberated. They were later set to music by John Gorka, and here are sung
by Edwin McCain. No matter one's feelings on the war in Iraq, it's critical on
Memorial Day that we stop to
remember the fallen soldiers and their families of this war and all others, in addition to the civilian lives lost.
Iraq: more than 650,000 civilians
and over 4,396 Coalition soldiers - dead from war. Darfur: over 400,000 people, dead. Israel and Palestine: over 5,400 people since 2000. The Congo: 3,000,000 since 1998. Pakistan.Chechnya. Afghanistan.
New York. Sri Lanka. Lebanon. Our Sons and Daughters. Husbands and Wives. Sisters and Brothers. Parents and Friends. It's enough already. All you "leaders" out there, listen. We - the people - want peace, please. NOW!
The visual above shows photos of people of peace, or visual
expressions of peace which they created. These photos provide just a small capsule of the tens of millions
of people around the world raising their voices and being visible and vocal for peace. Please join in!
