How Long Must We Sing This Song?
There is always more than one side to armed conflict. There are always perspectives not clear to the watching world.
As we sit and watch the growing unrest and violence in Egypt today, the anniversary of another violent and deadly protest against a government is marked today. Thirty-nine years ago today, the Bogside Massacre occurred in Derry, perhaps best known in America as the event that inspired today's song.
So, as the news of the world unfolds before us, I have to join in this chorus, and ask the question, "how long, how long must we sing this song?"
