Newer Folkie: Holly Near

I cannot tell if I prefer the title "Singing for our lives," or the subtitle "We are a gentle angry people."

Either way I felt it was worth sharing this again from the 2004 women's march. 13 years later we are fighting and singing again.

As Peter, Paul and Mary said in "Light One Candle"

             We have come this far, always believing
             That justice would somehow prevail.
             This is the burden, this is the promise
             This is why we will not fail!

Even if we have to fight the same battles every 13 years.

"We are a peaceful, loving people...."
