Thread Name: HELP! Need a song about peace!!!
Subject: HELP! Need a song about peace!!!
Hi, Mudcatters! I hope you can help me with this challenge. My campus Peace Club (of which I am a member) is holding a vigil tomorrow on the steps of our administration building. The vigil is on behalf of the children in Iraq, many of whom experience malnutrition, sickness, and death as a result of the sanctions placed on Iraq. We're going to ring the campus bell once for every child who dies in a day as a direct result of the sanctions. problem is that they've asked ME to lead a song!!! And I don't know what's appropriate! My friend and I have been digging through "Rise Up Singing" and other resources, looking for a song that would be appropriate, easy to play, and MAYBE easy enough that everyone could sing on the chorus. The simpler, the better, I'm sure. This is not a post about politics, just a folksinger problem that I hope you 'Catters can help me with. Any ideas?!!!
