Well, this, Carol C, is the perfect moment to bring music back into the thread. Great seque.

You ask ---what is the point in saying this--referrring to the assasinations of peacemakers.

    So--back to the music. Please try to listen to Eric Bogle's beautiful composition (of the many) The Blessing. It appears on his Small Miracles CD. You might also appreciate his "Never Again/Remember" on his I Wrote this Wee Song For Ye

    The BLessing was composed on the sad event of Rabin's death---but it could be for anyone. He also later wrote a song about his feelings about the horror of 9-11-01.   
    I am sure all of you know his other classics---among them The Band Played Waltzing Matilda, and so many more
