Living with War

Here is a link to Neil Young’s new album entitled “Living with War“. As a veteran of the Vietnam era and a lifelong peacenik I found it gratifying to listen to this album. I was beginning to wonder if there was anyone out there that had a voice to speak to the thousands of people killed, maimed and forever changed by this illegal war in Iraq. Neil’s getting a lot of grief from the right-wing dominated mainstream press. Prophets are never welcome and Neil is speaking truth to power. Praise God for men like Neil Young who have the courage to speak clearly in times when the voice of truth needs to be reaffirmed.

Another very moving song I recently listened to is “Dear Mr. President” by Pink. When I hear voices like this it gives me hope. Peace and all good to you.
