August Peace Post


“For this month’s Peace Challenge I want to invoke the power of music…Post anything about the intersection of music and peace…”

For August’s peace challenge, I’ve chosen to post a video I found on YouTube of the song “Some Where Over The Rainbow” arranged by Israel Kamakawiwo’ole. It’s a combination of “Over the Rainbow” written by Yip Harburg and “What a Wonderful World” written by Bob Thiele and George David Weiss. Israel’s song reminds me of longing for peace and finding it in the events of everyday life. The images in the video are also very peaceful and soothing. Enjoy! Peace be with you!

“Wherever you go, God be with you.”
-Israel Kamakawiwo’ole

About Claudia

Hi!! My name is Claudia. Blogging is sort of a creative/therapeutic activity for me. I blog about being a wife, mother, student, caseworker, and simply being human through photography, words, music, and blog challenges. Mental illness has also been part of my life, so you'll sometimes find mental health and psychology in my posts. I've dealt with anxiety and depression most of my life. And my husband has bipolar disorder. My hope is that I may show readers that it is possible for people to live positive, productive lives despite mental illness, challenges, or frustrations.
