Song for peace

by Teresa Healy

Sunday, March 5, marked the 100th day since Tom Fox, Norman Kember, Jim Loney, and Harmeet Sooden were kidnapped in Baghdad. The four hostages are human rights workers who, as part of the Christian Peacemakers Teams (CPT), were documenting the abuses faced by those detained by the Occupation forces in Iraq. At present, over 14,000 Iraqis are being held without charges. CPT continues its work to end the occupation and militarization of Iraq. They are tireless in their call for the end ofthe occupation, respect for the human rights for the detainees, and the release of the four hostages.

I wrote this song for all of us who want to stand against the illegal and unjust attack on Iraq. So many families have lost their loved ones. Three years after the invasion, the whole world knows the occupation must end.
