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
