Peace Research Institute

Liz and Jay continue to kick out the jams: their latest project–actually one that they’ve been involved in for many years, but that is now seeing the light of the digital day–is a collaboration with Willie Nelson. Yeah, *that* Willie Nelson: he of the tao and the beater guitar and all. “The Willie Nelson Peace Research Institute believes in the Promise of Peace on Earth in Our Lifetime as the Birthright of Our Global Human Family.” Amen to that, brothers and sisters. I’m saying, check it out now–while you still can. The site is full of great ideas that ought to get your compassion flowing. Here’s a verse from a lyric by Willie and Amy Nelson:

There is a peaceful solution. It’s called a peace revolution.
Now let’s take back America.
There’s a war and we’re in it, but I know we can win it.
So let’s take back America.

Now check out Willie singing the whole thing a cappella.
