I Awakened This Morning…

I Awakened this morning with my TV still on from last night and tuned to Bill Moyer’s Journal on PBS. I heard Bill Moyer’s say:

When this election is over, no matter who wins, there will be much to repair, if we have the will for it. So it seems a good moment to introduce you to someone of the next generation who hasn't given up on either our humanity or our future together.

Mark Johnson is the co-director of a remarkable documentary about the simple but transformative power of music: PLAYING FOR CHANGE: PEACE THROUGH MUSIC...

If you’ve not seen the broadcast, I invite—urge—you to click HERE and awaken, no matter how many hours you have been up today, to this broadcast of beauty, peace and hope.

And, if you are as inspired to build a better world as I am, you may also want to go to the website of Playing for Change, explore more, feel the hope, love, and peace, perhaps even join the community.

May you have a beautiful and wonder-filled Sunday.


  1. I saw this show, too, Nick. Other than DVD's, Moyers is the only reason our television is ever on.

    Mark Johnson is an amazing man and his work gives me hope. That show gave me smiles for hours afterward.

    I saw that the CD's and DVD's of his won't be available until early 2009. I'm really looking forward to that! I wish that I could buy some for Christmas gifts this year...

  2. Carol: I so agree with you! Although I only saw Moyer’s program this morning, I have been back to the
    Media Section of the Playing for Change website and listened to every sample song there. I wish I could download some of them now!

    The music is fab!!! Like you, I have spent the day with a smile on my face—and hope in my heart.

  3. Wonderful idea! I love the music.

  4. Isn't it wonderful that there are people who are taking positive steps toward peace and unity.

  5. Thank you for sharing this. I think it is very exciting.

  6. What a brilliant man.
    What hope he brings--

    Thank you. I'll be smiling my way through the morning now.

  7. Thank you for introducing me to Playing for Change.
