Peace is possible

To the Editor:

Peace is possible. Words of John F. Kennedy, Dwight D. Eisenhower, and many folk singers echo around this troubled world.

Holly Near is on a nationwide tour, including San Francisco, Chicago, Concord, Massachusetts, Nantucket, and here in the Old Whaling Church on Sunday, July 22.

Her songs of peace have inspired audiences for more than 30 years. Our 50- to 60-year-old daughters alerted us to her music, and we have been “Singing for Our Lives” ever since. In fact, this song is Number 170 in the Unitarian Hymnal, so many congregations have been singing it for decades. We all can swing to its lyrics.
