“Lay Down Your Arms” by Doron Levinson is the Peace Song of the Day for 3/16/2012. This song is about an appeal to God. Though, it could be written or expressed as a meditation, or a wish sent out to the universe. Some of the images are profound and beautiful.
“Soldiers” by ABBA is the Peace Song of the Day for February 20th. Duke Augustus found this song among a huge list of antiwar songs posted at Wikipedia: here.

Protocol by Gordon Lightfoot is the Peace Song of the Day for February 22nd. This song asks…
“Who are the ones who would lead us now to the sound of a thousand guns?”
Duchess Susanna writes: It amazes me the way that some people will go out and buy exactly the same dress, in exactly the same color, that Duchess Catherine (aka Kate Middleton) wore somewhere. For my own sense of independence and dignity, I would at least want to pick a different color. Though, the exact ones modeled by the princess are the exact ones that get sold out and crash websites.
The idea of all of these women strolling around Great Britain and the United States in the same dress reminded me of what my departed friend, Susan Blake, called “the monoculture”. And, it reminded me of the Malvina Reynolds song “Little Boxes”. The song “Little Boxes” is The Royal Peace Song of the Day. It is can be found on page 2 in Rise Up Singing. (Favorite campfire song book of The Duke and Duchess of Peace.) Continue reading Royal Peace Song of The Day: “Little Boxes” made of ticky tacky
Duke Augustus: The corporate media have been in an absolute tizzy over every stitch of clothing the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge have been wearing while blithely passing along all their military boosterism. They have even exposed Kate Middleton’s preferred choice of undergarments.
Now we are going to be inundated with more information about Kate & Will’s unmentionables then we would ever want to know. As Prince William and Duchess Catherine fly into the United States today, they will meet up with this country’s first line of defense, the TSA.
And we are not just talking a cancer-causing full body scan here. Remember Prince William is not only a foreign national, he is a member of a foreign military. The military he belongs to has a history of violent attacks upon US citizens and fomenting insurrection within the Unites States. In addition, Prince William has just spent the last week trolling along the US border, and boasting of his country’s military exploits.
Prince William is a TSA profiler’s dream. If he, and his entourage, don’t get pulled off the customs line for a full body search, then the whole Homeland Security Department should be fired.
