Peter Yarrow at Occupy Wall Street : Puff the Magic Dragon

Live! Peter Yarrow singing Puff the Magic Dragon and more. Supporting Occupy Wall Street at Liberty Square/Zucotti Park.
Happened from about 3:45pm to 4:15pm

The great spirit of Peter, Paul, and Mary’s music blesses the Wall Street protesters.

First, singing Puff the Magic Dragon, adding words about pirates who are really stock traders, and sailing at “Liberty Square”. Then, saying that him and his son are proud to be there, and his daughter will be coming. Singing “Where Have All The Flowers Gone”.

Next song…”Have you been to jail for justice?” by Anne Feeney

Have you been to jail for justice, then you’re a friend of mine! Repeated over and over again!!!!

He is staying a long time. I think he is stalling until his daughter shows up.  And, now, a family reunion…very cool!

Standing in memory of Mary Travers.

It is all so heartwarming and gushing, it is kind of breaking down the people’s mic. People are in awe. At least we can all hear the singing!!!

“The generations carry this message forward, and do not let this effort die…

To keep America, America, this is essential.”

Next song: If I Had a Hammer

6,000 plus viewers on the Live Stream (usually it is 5,000 on a good day!)

Bethany Yarrow sang a beautiful, Native American song, in the Native language. The words included a request to shower blessings onto America and to the next seven generations. A moment of quiet, spiritual beauty.

Then, everyone linked hands and sang “We Shall Overcome” and “We Shall Live in Peace”. Mushy, mushy. I was crying. I was holding up the phone to a peace activist friend who is not on-line so much. And, people in the chatroom said they were crying.

  1. Billions of Hands for fulfilling one great Vision. Global Call to Action!

    Forty eight years after Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. gave his “I Have a Dream” speech to the nation, much of his “promised land” vision has come to fruition. Unfortunately, there are still persistent weed seeds of hate that remain embedded in our collective consciousness, hindering our success as individuals and as a society. The Problem does not lie in Wall Street. The problem lies within ourselves. I

    Let’s Finish with Our Hands what Dr. King Started with His Heart and Soul

    Just as weeds compete for nutrients and water that cultivated garden plants require, our inner weed seeds, the germs of prejudice and hate, prevent us from experiencing our deepest root-connections to nature. With the right intention, removing weeds from our yards and gardens can serve as a paradigm for eradicating the inner weeds of hate and prejudice that many of us harbor and too often suppress. The physical act of weeding,therefore, enables us individually and collectively to realize Dr. King’s dream for a world free of hate and prejudice for one and all.

    Let’s weed out hate, LITERALLY, and sow the seeds of peace!

  2. […] Party rallies use country music.  Occupy Wall Street uses the same music but they call it ‘folk.’ Tea Partiers pray while OWS’ers meditate.  Both will spin outlandish stories about secret […]
