Which Side Are You On?


Pete Seeger sings the union song:

You might want to check out the Natalie Merchant or the Billy Bragg version, but whatever you do, don't miss the Florence Reece version:

Thanks Kat,

A while back I went looking for this song and listened to it repeatedly. Now I'll listen to the others. Perfect and absolutely timely.

Re: Which Side Are You On?


This is what sustains me, and maybe it's poetry but probably not:

A long time ago I managed THE very best oncology (cancer) and AIDS and inpatient hospice units in the the largest health care system in the world, that being the VA. I am so proud of my staff. They loved like there was no tomorrow, and still do and I still do too........

I walked a 19 year old kid , attached to 5 IVs, and bald because of chemo, out to have a smoke. He had on his Marine service cap. We were on the 7th floor.

When the elevator opened to the 4th floor a patient, a gentleman, a former serviceman FOR US, got on. He was wearing Marine insignia as well. He must have been in his 70's.

He came to full salute to the young man I was escorting and said "Semper Fi'.

And my young man responded in full salute "Do or die."

I have never in my career as a nurse, or in my fortune to be a person, been so moved or so privileged to witness the brotherhood between 2 men of service, one in his 70's, one not even into his 20s. This bond we outside the armed forces do not know, do not understand, and will never, for the grace of God, ever understand. But I was moved to tears and I saluted them some 25 years ago and I salute all of them overseas and on our soil today.

For tonight, I am so tired of the ivory tower view of life. My friends went off to war--nurse managers at the VA.

I've been engaged in legislative efforts to provide more services to returning veterans and in research to demonstrate need. VOTE, RUN FOR OFFICE, chain yourself to something, VOLUNTEER! Or, write poetry.

Nameste. Peace. Love--

Love y'all still. Just touched a nerve tonight

Guess that means it was too much in your face?

Thank you for your forgiveness, Chris.

Thank you also, Kat.

I'm not apologizing for getting riled up about veterans, but that wasn't the topic, was it?

I'll just samba out of this discussion and hope everyone enjoyed the music.

Now, back to the union discussion which I so rudely interrupted:.....................................................................................................................................................................................................................

I didn't think you were apologizing for "getting riled up about veterans," Liz, or for having "rudely interrupted" the union song thread. I found your veteran story to be very heartfelt.
