With apologies to our friends outside the U.S.,
we wanted to put this voting message (see left) out there because of the upcoming elections on November 4. The song is by singer/songwriter Spook Handy and
the video was produced by Tom Florek. Whatever your affiliation we hope that you will exercise your right/duty to participate in government by voting on Tuesday. And if you can make
it a vote for peace while you're at it, well, that would be just excellent.
Iraq: more than 650,000 civilians
and over 4,504 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!
