Keeping The Faith. You Are Not Alone.

Alphabet The unprecedented, 1st-time-ever severe censorship of respected, impeccably-credentialed men and women doctors and experts during a world health crisis – namely COVID-19 – continues…

For those highly frustrated and even greatly angered over such an extraordinarily unusual situation persisting, we must here let them know: You are certainly not alone.

True artists fully understand the frustration, exasperation and, most importantly, the legitimate suspicions raised by the massive, puzzlingly irrational lack of full transparency and the non-inclusion of all serious voices around the Earth regarding COVID-19.

World-renowned vocal artist Bettye LaVette says an awful lot with few words in four minutes while performing “Political World”… Perhaps it will serve as some measure of solace for those suffering in profound disappointment over the absence of what had previously, throughout the entire record of global health crises, been the normal addressing of perfectly reasonable professionals’ positions on COVID-19 to know – you are undoubtedly not alone…

Keep the faith that there are more joining every minute of every passing day, and many more will soon get on board in great, even historic, determination involving efforts worldwide to arrive at the truth, no matter how difficult, disappointing, harsh or brutal. Do not stop in this epic historic battle to discover the truth, ever. Keep on and on and on until this important battle is convincingly, amazingly, indisputably won. Keep on powerfully fighting the good fight of a lifetime.



Bettye LaVette-2

We live in a political world
Where love ain’t got no place
We’re living in times, where men commit crimes
And crime ain’t got no place

We live in a political world
Wisdom is thrown into jail
It rots in a cell, misguided as hell
Leaving no one to pick up a trail

We live in a political world
Where mercy walks the plank
Life is in a mirror, death disappears
Up the steps to the nearest bank

We live in a political world
The one we can see and feel
But there’s no one to check, it’s all a stacked deck
We don’t know for sure if it’s real

We live in a political world
Where courage is a thing of the past
Houses are haunted, children are unwanted
The next day could be your last

We live in a political world
The cities of lonesome fear
Little by little we’re caught up in the middle
And you never know who he is

We live in a political world
Where peace ain’t nothing at all
It’s turned away from the door, to wander some more
Or put up it against the wall

We live in a political world
It’s gotta be hers or his
Climb into the frame, and shout out God’s name
But you never know who he is

Courage is a thing of the past
The next day could be your last

Calling All Artists For Peace.

Screen capture of a recent early episode of Open Mic on YouTube.

e recently came across a just-created admirable artistic effort which has great potential for popularizing and contributing to the important effort of people from all regions on Earth to stop war, and the chance for men and women of helping to finally (while having an enjoyable experience) establish universal peace – for the 1st time in modern/contemporary history.

The highly-respected organization Veterans For Peace (VFP) has just initiated a weekly Open Mic musical/artistic live-streaming platform providing a great opportunity to showcase serious talent, and it is available for men & women artists worldwide. Given the tough conditions for many previously working musicians where decent venues have become closed and gigs have virtually dried up, the new Veterans For Peace platform offers the chance to perform live for VFP members, supporters and viewers via YouTube & Facebook – while also contributing & sharing positive messages for the sake of increasing peace on Earth.

If you are an artist residing anywhere on Earth interested in the Veterans For Peace performance offering, or if you know family or friends or artists in your locale who you feel may be interested, please consider contacting VFP and completing the simple Open Mic process, and/or make musicians in your circles aware of the easy-to-apply good intent opportunity.

And who knows … Maybe you’ll become famous, or help someone you respect to become famous, while at the same time manifesting the “win-win” of making a good difference for this generation and generations yet unborn.

Thank you very much. Good luck. Peace.

Here is the Veterans For Peace organization’s website link for musicians & artists wishing to become involved and perform via live-stream, an opportunity which is open-to-all and scheduled for (4 hours) every Friday night on Open Mic:
