Don’t Let the Light Go Out | Peter, Paul and Mary

Amidst the recent corporate media coverage of “fake news,” SmileCalm shared a mind-blowing post on the uncertainty of truth. Within it, he brought forth this stellar Peter, Paul and Mary perfomance of Light One Candle.

Peter Yarrow’s song is perfect for The Season upon us. Let there be Peace, Hope, Love and Light — and, of course, may the real Truth please stand up!

Light is the torch. Pass it on.

    Tough to light candles in our time. I remember being alone, so many times, trying to hold my candle in the turbulence of lies, fake news, from the pretext to bomb Lybia, the lies about weapons of mass destruction, and all the others going back to Vietnam… I could only read about the other fake news that served to justify the unjustifiable. Using the Responsibility To Protect as an imperialist tool… As progressives have to recalibrate our beacons, reassess our strengths and weaknesses, and keep the faith in the future.

      These are the darkest of times – for climate crisis, alone. We sure do need to recalibrate our light, and keep the faith. Thanks for adding your thoughts, Fernan.
