Nice one, my brother.

Y'all enjoy Tim's thoughtful piece about Peace.

It's All About PEACE

Being elusive is an can be found if we only look.

Steven Demetre Georgiou was born in London in July of 1948. He is an Englishman with Greek/Swedish ancestry.

He was a child prodigy in music. He is a Concert Pianist/Guitarist Extraordinaire/Singer/Songwriter.

He came to America in the late 60's, and was an immediate and smashing hit. During a near-drowning incident in Malibou, in 1975, he says he told God that if He'd save him, he would work the rest of his life for Him. The Lord saved him, so he went on his quest to find Him. He tried Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, Zen, I Ching; as well as Astrology, Numerology, and Tarot Cards. His journey ended with his transition into the Islamic faith in 1977. In 1978 he changed his name to Yusuf Islam. He stopped performing publicly, and disavowed the commercial music business. He even went so far as to ask his record companies to quit selling his records (which they, of course, refused). He then proceeded to give ALL the royalties (he's sold over 60 million albums) to various charities supporting the lesser of his brethren, mainly the orphans and world hunger of the poverty stricken.

Now, after all these years, he is starting to perform publicly again. He's written and performed many well-known songs, arguably the best among them, is The Peace Train, written in 1970.

Some of you old-timers may remember Yusef going by the name of Cat Stevens.

Following, is a link to Yusuf's performance at the Nobel Peace Prize Awards in 2006. I would urge y'all to check it out..........all the way to the end. It is soooooooo moving. So without further ado, I'd like to invite y'all to come join me for a ride on

The Peace Train

When you're finished, this is a short piece I picked up from Naj, over at Neo-Resistance. It's a short slide show of everyday life of the people in Tehran, Iran. Watch it here. When you're finished watching it, ask yourself if these are the Iranians BushCo and his Congressional Lap-dogs keep warning us about wanting to kill us and our way of life.

ALL ABOARD.............................

With the Peace of God,

Brother Tim
