Speaking as a granny, I love taking the All We are Saying, Is Give Peace a Chance and changing peace to whatever - Earth? It fun to sing and add clangy music to.
On another note, I heard on NPR this am that there is going to be an investigation of the pepper spray incident and that made me realize, I bet I know what was going on (I was right behind the girls) which is, that cop deliberately sought the one girl out because she was marching for much of the way topless (fortunately she had donned it prior to the incident). He's probably kind of a closet perv. and really nasty man.

I've been thinking rather than chanting, it would be really cool if we could all sing in unison on one of our marches. If people like it we could repeat it. I can make copies at my office so if people want to send me their favorite songs for everyone to sing I could print out some lyric sheets!
Let's also try and break free from the old school protest songs (even though I am including "we shall overcome") and try some new stuff like "where is the love?" by Black Eyed Peas. But don't let that stop you from suggesting those oldies and goodies for me to write down.
The grannies shouldn't be the ones having all the fun!
Peace and Love,
