good words

today, while driving and listening to "the world" on npr, i heard a remembrance of the south african singer miriam makeba, who died this week at the age of 76. i heard her speak the following words and thought they were very powerful:

"Honestly, I'm just a little old lady, a little old singer, I'm not a politician, I'm not an economist, or anything of the sort. I just wish that people can be soldiers. We can all be soldiers, soldiers not to fight against each other but to fight against poverty, illnesses, disease, and greed, and all the ills of the world, you know just be an army for all goodness."
