Playing for Change, and one Very Brave Girl, Speaking Truth to Power
Posted by honestpoet on March 7, 2009
Here’s a Canadian girl who, back in 1992, with some of her friends, came to Brazil to address the United Nations and challenged them to act like loving parents to the world’s children. It’s awesome. Do watch.
This was back in 1992. I don’t know that it did much good then, but maybe the video, now circling the world thanks to our new ability to communicate with each other, may finally do some good. Certainly the idea that we are One World is starting to gain some currency.
Here’s a great musical statement of solidarity: the song “Stand By Me” performed by musicians around the world.
Here’s a link to the website where you can learn more about the people who made it, Playing for Change, a group of folk determined to bring people together and create peace through music. Sounds good to me. Peace, people.
