Found this video: Bill Moyers of PBS interviewing producer MARK JOHNSON
, the director of PLAYING FOR CHANGE ~ PEACE THROUGH MUSIC
It's a 13 minute video about a man who is making a difference in the world through MUSIC. Since I've featured some of his the CD music on my blog recently, and because much of what's he's shared with the world has touched my HEART so deeply... and the hearts of many others... I felt it appropriate to share him explaining his PASSION to you!
Here's the HEART and PASSION behind

As children, we imagined so many things, and felt like there was no limits to what our imaginations would deliver us while we played. We never doubted our imaginations, we never failed to use our imaginations when life around us was peaceful. And when it wasn't... we used our imaginations to escape reality and find a better one.
I have always loved
John Lennon's song, IMAGINE...
and found a video that touched me
and I imagine it will touch you also JOHN LENNON'S
IMAGINE and his song
LOVE IS REAL
race ~ religion
We are ALL
Here's a unique video I found touchingly
right on... perhaps there's something
about it you'll find fascinating also
Religion must be
the cause of UNITY... WORLD PEACE PLEASE
... WORLD RELIGION DAY VOICE
I often have wondered how the word PEACE appears in other countries
, other cultures' languages... and over the years I've seen a few. I searched cyber space for more examples and came up with a large number of variations on the English version of PEACE. I INjoyed it, perhaps you will also and perhaps you can add one to the list! THE WORD PEACE
in many, many, many world languages...
so peace may look and sound differently
around good earth...
but the common denominator
hopefully one day will become
that ALL humans have
themselves.... then our world can
know her PEACE at last! This is the first
in a loose series of posts I plan on doing on various BRAVEHEARTED WOMEN
that have touched down here on planet earth. And in their own unique ways...
absolutely MADE A DIFFERENCE
Look what Olive Oil and
Lucy have done !
In the words of
our dear late PEACE PILGRIM
"We who work for peace must not falter. We must continue to pray for peace and to act for peace in whatever way we can, we must continue to speak for peace and to live the way of peace; to inspire others, we must continue to think of peace and to know that peace is possible
"In order for the world to become peaceful, people must become more peaceful. Among mature people war would not be a problem - it would be impossible. In their immaturity people want, at the same time, peace and the things which make war. However, people can mature just as children grow up. Yes, our institutions and our leaders reflect our immaturity, but as we mature we will elect better leaders and set up better institutions. It always comes back to the thing so many of us wish to avoid: working to improve ourselves
. Peace Pilgrim's brief biography
would read like this:
Her pilgrimage spanned almost three decades beginning January 1, 1953, in Pasadena, California. The Korean War was in progress. She continued walking for 28 years, spanning the American involvement in the Vietnam War and beyond. Peace Pilgrim was a frequent speaker at churches, universities, and local and national radio and television.
Expressing her ideas about peace, she referred to herself only as "Peace Pilgrim
." Peace Pilgrim's only possessions were the clothes on her back and the few items she carried in the pockets of her blue tunic which read "Peace Pilgrim
" on the front and "25,000 Miles on foot for peace" on the back. She had no organizational backing, carried no money
, and would not even ask for food or shelter. When she began her pilgrimage she had taken a vow to "remain a wanderer until mankind has learned the way of peace, walking until given shelter and fasting until given food."
On July 7, 1981, while being driven to a speaking engagement near Knox, Indiana, Peace Pilgrim was killed in an automobile accident. At the time of her death, she was crossing the United States for the seventh time. After her death, she was cremated, and her ashes were interred in a family plot near Egg Harbor City, New Jersey.
I find it ironic that for all the years she walked across the US almost 7 times, she leaves our human experience while riding in a car! I remember hearing about her on the news while amidst raising my kids and being that harried housewife, mother, homemaker. I use to think it would take one really brave woman
to do that, and yet watching interviews with her and watching the following video on her, lets you know that she had absolutely NO fear! She knew she was to do what she was doing and she COULD NOT NOT DO her thing! I hope you'll view this video, it's well done, gentle and relaxing and insightful about life and living with PASSION.
Here is an exquisite video
of the BRAVEHEARTED WOMAN
known to the world
as... PEACE PILGRIM As tears fall... pause and give tribute to ALL
who have fallen in the name of bringing
peace to a world in need of singing
that all humans may stand TALL Shall we all give
PEACE a CHANCE ?
and give this video a chance
to grow on you...
it really does in an
odd sort of way... GIVE PEACE A CHANCE April 20th...
