This is going to be a rather musical Peace Blog entry as I’ve been doing it now for more than a decade, and needed a new idea of two. Albert Einstein provided the quote. One very brave totally involved lady eagle kept her newest brood safe from a completely unexpected DC snowstorm. During the worst of it, her mate lay on top of her to shield them all. Sometimes we all need to accept the assistance of others to weather the worst of life’s events. When it comes to peace, get involved.
Each year Queen Mimi of Bloggingham Castle requests an encore from The Bear A Tones. When her majesty makes a decree for Dona Nobis Pacem, this wonderful Colorado Bob creation must appear.
On Broadway there is a great show Come From Away. If you can get to New York while it is still playing do so. If not get the album. It tells the story of the planes that were grounded in Nova Scotia due to the 9/11 attack, the passengers from all over the world who were stranded together and the amazing Canadians who welcomed and cared for them. Which brings us once more to the “when feeling overwhelmed, get involved” theme. It is a funny, thoughtful, both sad and joyous show. In the middle of it, several people are seeking peace and they find it in old hymns and remembered songs of their various faiths with a prayer for peace. Today let’s sing that prayer together.
