“Imagine” by John Lennon must inevitably be mentioned. The anniversary of his death was this past week, December 8, but his message of peace has long lived on. This song unforgettably asks, “Imagine all the people living life in peace.” Also, “You may say I’m a dreamer, but I’m not the only one.” Knowing that you’re not the only one wishing and working for peace can be very strength-building.
“Let There Be Peace on Earth” is a song often played at the holidays. It’s performed by Vince Gill and his daughter, Jenny. The song’s message is one of truth, beautifully pointing out that peace on earth really begins with peace within each and every one of us.
“Where Is The Love?” by the Black Eyed Peas is a song from their third album, “Elephunk.” It’s an exuberant tune that really looks at the modern world and what it means to live in love and peace, as well as how to set an example for those who are growing up in a changing world.
These are just a few of the dozens of songs that can help inspire peace. Be sure to make your own peace playlist to inspire you when the going gets rough or just to enjoy and celebrate the peace that work toward.
