John Prine is on my stereo singing...
"Your flag decal won't get you into heaven anymore
It's already over crowded
From your dirty llittle war
Jesus dont' like killin'
No matter what the reason's for
So your flag decal wont' get you into heaven anymore"
He wrote that song during the Viet Nam days....
Kinda chilling to hear it again.
We went to an anti-war rally today.
I was surprised by two things...
The only people there under 30 were the rosy-cheeked toddlers playing with balloons.
Wouldn't you think the ones who are of an age to go to war might be more interested?
In our mostly conservative town that always elects Republicans in national elections, we only got yelled at twice by passing motorists!
Mostly we got smiles, waves and peace signs.
Maybe the tide is turning.....
or maybe it's just that southern inclination to smile and wave when you pass someone.....
