Just Give Her Some Truth! Singer-Songwriter Laura Love Offers Open Letter On Iraq Crisis

Bookmark and Share

Singer-songwriter, Laura Love, who UTNE Reader recently named to their 2003 list of Artists Who Will Shake The World, offers an open letter on the Iraq crisis on the deadly sounds of silence:

I wrote "I Want You Gone" because I have never been so angry as I am now. I have never been so afraid for my future as I am now. I have never been so moved to act as I am now.

I feel compelled to speak out against a president and an administration that would insist upon leading an unwilling nation and world into a war whose consequences will surely be death and global calamity.

If this president could demonstrate the same passion for protecting the environment, advancing the plight of the poor and furthering education as he has for making the rich richer and flexing his military muscle, I might be able to get over the fact that he stole the election and crammed the Patriot Act down our throats.

The world will not be freer and safer as a consequence of this war. The world will be a freer and safer when all of its citizens have equal access to the basic necessities of life.

I don't expect that this song will bring about world peace or anything but writing it made me feel a whole lot better and that there is something I can do, that we can do as an artistic community to call into question the fountains of untruth flowing in Washington.

We in the musical community have a proud history of questioning authority. It is essential to our role that we now raise our hands in greater number and lift up the vox populi of our America for the world and our leaders to see and hear.

Music isn't just about being nice and making it rhyme. It's about making sounds that disrupt the silent passivity of a country being lead deadly astray.

Laura's protest song "I Want You Gone" is featured on her April 22nd KOCH Records release, Welcome To Pagan Place.
