“Freedom“, from the Broadway musical, “Shenandoah“, is the Peace Song of the Day for October 26th.
The Duke and Duchess of Peace would like to dedicate this song to the brave folks at Occupy Oakland. Last night, various police entities attacked the freedom of Oakland – and all of us – by using weapons against Americans exercising their right to Freedom of Speech and Freedom of Assembly. See the bottom of this post for info about how to support and/or donate to Occupy Oakland.

Excerpt from the song
(from the musical, “Shenandoah”)
Freedom ain’t a state like Maine or Virginia
Freedom ain’t across some county line
Freedom is a flame that burns within ya
Freedom’s in the state of mind
