Beat the Drum Slowly
Women Against War
BEAT THE DRUM SLOWLY is a grass roots movement to record all women everywhere on the peace anthem, "She Came Riding Up Slowly". Music has the ability to reach across all lines quickly and communicate. This song seeks to reach beyond political and religious affiliations to the most powerful and influential group on the planet:
I, for one, have had enough: thousands of years of war and atrocity in the name of Power and God. Women are half the population of the world. We know children are born with no inherent hatred for race, religion or country. And yet we raise them to believe there are reasons to kill. What if none of us did that anymore?
