The call for peace is so strong and clear in Cat Stevens‘ Peace Train, it makes me want to just jump on board. This video was filmed during the 2006 Nobel Peace Prize concert for Muhammad Yunus, the founder of the Grameen Bank in Bangladesh, which does micro-lending to the poor. This model for overcoming poverty has been copied around the world.
Excerpt from the song
Now I’ve been happy lately,
Thinking about the good things to come,
And I believe it could be, something good has begun
Oh I’ve been smiling lately, dreaming about the world as one,
And I believe it could be, some day its going to come
The Peace Song of the Day is a project of Duke Augustus and Duchess Susanna, The Duke and Duchess of Peace. The Duke and Duchess recognize that one of the paths to peace is to find soulful and nonviolent entertainment, and to express oneself with art and song.
