Jackson Browne lyrically laments in “Lives in the Balance”…
I’ve been waiting for something to happen
For a week or a month or a year
With the blood in the ink of the headlines
And the sound of the crowd in my ear
You might ask what it takes to remember
When you know that you’ve seen it before
Where a government lies to a people
And a country is drifting to war…
What if we introduced and passed People’s Lobby American World Service Corps National Service (AWSCNS) Congressional Proposal and that sent a million paid Yankee volunteers a year to national serve in such organizations as:
Would the ability to hook Americans into wars lessen?
People’s Lobby successfully pushed Congresswoman Boxer to introduce HR1807, the US-USSR Peace Corps in 1989.
When explained and thought about huge pluralities of voters support AWSCNS and joint Peace Corps, especially in this age of climate and refugee challenges.
Our problem is we lack prominent voices spreading the message of good will such enacted programs could do.
Might you consider using your voice to spread the word?
Isn’t it time to go big with Peace?
