Under construction.  There are many sites that contain useful information and good people around the world doing good work.   I can’t list most, but will try to list those lesser known, relating to these interests.  Links I deem important, as we move forward. (Below are some more common and ready ones)

Cat Stevens, for decades now Yusuf Islam, has come out with a most beautiful song.  (ps.  The Rushdie controversy was badly handled to say the least, but so it’s become clear it was a fatwa Yusuf never supported.)  Thank you Yusuf:

Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. one of the greatest American Leaders of my lifetime, delivers here a speech I had only heard about, but not until 1986 in Atlanta at his Center for Non-Violence did I put on headphones and listen to.   I was completely moved then as I am today by his clarity and genuine voice.  We were so fortunate to have him.   It speaks to us today, especially with the tragedy of Iraq, as much as anytime.   Delivered at the Riverside Church in NYC, April 3rd, 1967.  A year later almost to the hour, and most likely because of his stance on this war, we lost him, but never this Spirit. Thank you Martin.

One of the true journalists I’ve increasly come to trust and admire over the decades is Bill Moyers.   He has greatly helped inform those thirsty for reason, on our spiritual quests as well as our need to get behind the largest issues of our day.   Thank you Bill.
