Video:
A Prayer to St. Peter

The words to the song in the video at left are by an unknown author, and were discovered on
a hospital wall in the Philippines after the fighting ended there
in WWII. They were later set to music by John Gorka, and here are sung by Edwin McCain. No matter one's feelings on the wars in Afghanistan or Iraq, it's critical on Memorial Day that
we stop to remember the fallen soldiers and their families of these wars and all others, as well as the civilian dead.



Iraq: more than 650,000 civilians and over 4,619 Coalition soldiers - dead from war. Afghanistan:
over 1,158 Coalition soldiers dead, with the civilian death count unknown.Darfur: over 400,000 people, dead. Israel and Palestine: over 6,200 people since 2000. The Congo: 3,000,000 since 1998. Mumbai. Chechnya. New York. Sri Lanka. Lebanon. Madrid. The list goes on. 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!
