Qana and Patti Smith

Zena from Beruit Update, has linked a song written by Patti Smith, found on the Patti Smith’s site. It is a very powerful and sad song about the recent massacre in Qana, Lebanon. This is also the city in which the Bible tells us that Jesus turned water into wine.

I must warn you that there is a very graphic picture of a child who was one of the 35 children killed in this massacre which was caused by Israeli bombs landing on civilian homes. If you don’t want to see the picture, scroll slowly to read the lyrics and then stop as soon as the lyrics stop.

Have a listen to the song, it’s as powerful as the lyrics.
