This clip was recorded in 1998, which is a long time ago in any sense, but in particular is before the world changed forever at 9/11.
Here is James Taylor’s lovely song about the need to get Northern Ireland back to peaceful normality, without interference from Irish republican interests in the USA. I have no idea why it is not better known, or why it has not become a hymn of some sort. Originally it was titled “God’s Rifle”, and it got Taylor a lot of flak from the God people and the hawks, though in fact very few people in the USA seem to understand what it was about. I shall carefully avoid giving any opinions on the politics or the history; quite simply, I find the song very emotional, yet it still seems to offer a message of hope which is very appropriate for a bright new year.
Peace to you all, brothers.
