Never Again pell HERE

Over twenty years ago I experienced the beginning of a very deep connection to Gandhi. I made a lot of changes in my life as a result, and am still making them.

Because of Gandhi I’ve practiced Ahimsa for more than two decades — singing and marching for peace at some of the world’s biggest protests.

Gandhi’s version of nonviolence isn’t passive or weak. It requires we rise up for the force that is positive and just.

I’m unsure exactly how Gandhi would rise up for peace in the Ukraine, but I’m fairly certain he wouldn’t take it lying down.

Perhaps the world will find a way to stop Putin’s insanity. I have to hope we can.

Our voices matter. They ring out around the world, our music reaches people we’ve never met and is heard in places we’ve never been. That’s difficult to process but it really inspires me to create with all of you.

Javolenus, you knocked this out of the park. Would love to play it live one day — perhaps on a stage calling for peace.

Never Again
by Madam Snowflake

I’m Wistfully dreaming of a blue sky and peace
When the gunfire and reckless bombing finally cease
My heart is with the people who rise innocently
To stand against the tyrant and with those who’ve been forced to flee

History’s repeating
Feels like I can’t do nothing
To stop history repeating
Gotta speak up say something my love

I stand upon the lookout where they took the land, their flag was flying
Hoisted by empire whose power comes by stealing
With a different face and a different name this violent greed still looks the same to me
But he’s just one man and we’re an endless field of flowers rising

History’s repeating
Can’t sit here doing nothing to stop
History repeating
Gotta speak up say something love
History’s repeating
Can’t sit here doing nothing to stop
History repeating
Gotta speak up say something my love
My love
My love

Shed your fear root in your pain
We said never, never again
Shed your fear root in your pain
Never ever again
Shed your fear root in your pain
We said never, never again
Shed your fear root in your pain
Never ever again

But history’s repeating
Won’t sit here doing nothing to stop
History repeating
Gotta speak up, say something love
History’s repeating
Won’t sit here doing nothing to stop
History repeating
Gotta speak up say something my love
My love

Shed your fear root in your pain
We said never, never again
Shed your fear root in your pain
Never ever again
Shed your fear root in your pain
We said never, never again
Shed your fear root in your pain
Never ever again

We’re a field of flowers rising
We’re a field of flowers rising
