I Protest!!! Vigorously!!!!

  • Pink captures President Bush's callous disregard with heart-rending accuracy. This song makes me cry every time I hear it.
  • Jackson Brown's new song is fabulous! Lives in the Balance truly touches on the choices facing America today.
  • An Arlo Guthrie classic! You'd be amazed at how it fits our modern war ethics.
  • Bruce Hornsby's finest. We are treating the Katrina survivors the same way.
  • By Phil Ochs. Not what you'd think. He wrote it following the murder of three civil rights workers in the mid '60's. Still pertinent today, I fear.
  • This one's by Lindsay Buckingham. All hail the 4th estate!
  • Song by the late, great Harry Chapin. It references Vietman, but remains pithy.
  • By Bright Eyes. One of the best protest songs to come along in years.
  • From the musical, 1776.
    Check it out - the reference may be Revolutionary War era, but the sentiment rocks!

Sweetie, I'm so sorry. He was part of the family, though. There are certainly people like that in mine, who are very prickly.

It's hard with our animal friends, because we can't really convince them to do what's good for them. We have to watch and be patient and hope. You did your part. *hugs*


Aww honey I'm so sorry. It's hard to lose our beloved pets, I know. Take comfort that he's at peace now, and remember the Rainbow Bridge. Sending you hugs.


Louie, picked you of all humans to be his friend. Cats know, you let him live on his own terms. he was lucky to have you. We're sorry for the pain of his loss for you. Peace, mandt


It's so hard when they go, our animal friends.


I'm so sorry for your loss. I've been through this twice. Once with our cat of fourteen years who I was able to be with at the end, waiting until I returned from a 3 month hiatus to finally lay down and be sick.

Once with our dog of ten years who managed to die accidentally without us there to save him. His name was Mischief and he was aptly named. He came close to death so many times and we saved him from himself so many times, but one.

It doesn't get easier or softer with time. I will tell you that I got to the point that I remember life as well as death.
