Blogathon #6 – Blogathon Music Break

All of this is about peace. Soulforce is a coalition of peaceful people working for justice through nonviolent means. What an example they are to the warmongering world! I do what I do to let my small voice be a voice for peace. It’s only appropriate to share the words of a singer/songwriter whose life also was devoted to that vital principle.

A Voice for Peace

by Dan Fogelberg (1951-2007)

You know that everybody has a voice
And how they use it is their own free choice
But in your glory I will not rejoice
If you choose the ways of war
If you choose the ways of war

Ashes to ashes and dust to dust
My country tis of thee; in God we trust
But how much longer will he shelter us
While we choose the ways of war
While the winds of war rage on

Chorus:
Let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice for peace
Oh, let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice for peace
Let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice for peace
Let it start here with me
Oh let mine be a voice for peace

The good book tells us thou shalt not kill
The truth came shining and it’s shining still
But how much blood upon this earth must spill
Before we lay our weapons down
Let us lay our weapons down

Let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice for peace
Oh, let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice for peace
Let mine (oh let my small voice) be a voice for peace
Let it start here with me oh let mine be a voice
And in the face of the beast oh let mine be a voice
Until the breaths in me cease oh let mine be a voice for peace

Be a voice for peace. Help Soulforce in its nonviolent efforts to build bridges, make peace, and secure equality for our LGBT brothers and sisters.  Blogathon 2009 rolls on… next missive in 30 minutes. (We’ll be here all day and all of the night… follow us on Twitter: @allfactsandopin.)  In the meantime, do your part:  Support Soulforce — sponsor AF&O in the ‘Thon.
