“Final Straw” by Michael Stipe/REM is the Peace Song of the Day for February 3rd. While this song does not name or assert “peace”, still, it is a good song about what a person of peace needs to do in a time of war.
“As I raise my head to broadcast my objection…”
Excerpt from lyrics:
Now love cannot be called into question.
Forgiveness is the only hope I hold.
And love- love will be my strongest weapon.
I do believe that I am not alone.
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.
