On the Third Day of Chanukkah

On the Third Day of Chanukkah YouTube gave to me three folk stars…

…two BNLs…and a lesson in the spelling.

Notes: This song, Light One Candle, was written by Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary. I feel some of its lyrics feel appropriate for Pearl Harbor Day as well.

Light one candle for the terrible sacrifice
Justice and freedom demand
But light one candle for the wisdom to know
When the peacemaker’s time is at hand

What is the memory that’s valued so highly
That we keep it alive in that flame?
What’s the commitment to those who have died
That we cry out they’ve not died in vain?
We have come this far always believing
That justice would somehow prevail
This is the burden, this is the promise
This is why we will not fail!
