Now More Than Ever, Playing For Change


God Bless America

Seeking peace through the universal language of music, the global community of performers and producers known as Playing For Change now have a band that's been on tour for a month, with a final performance Saturday in New Orleans. Proving the old can be made new, and moving, Grandpa Elliott took time out to perform "God Bless America" at L.A.'s Dodger Stadium. To see/hear him, find out about the band, or get their extraordinary CD, go here

 “As a human race we come together for birth, we come together for
death. What brings us together in between is up to us" –    Mark Johnson, founder of Playing
for Change.

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
