Crimes of Cain by: Joan Baez

I am reminded of this haunting song “Many Crimes of Cain” by Joan Baez, whenever there is a struggle for freedom, and the violence upon the oppressed is stopped much too late, if stopped at all.

The film, “To Kill A Priest”, (Takes place during the Solidarity Movement in Poland) in which, Christopher Lambert beautifully portrayed Father Jerzy Popieluzko, left such an unforgettable impact on me. Now, with the events in the Ukraine, Venezuela, Syria–anywhere human rights are oppressed, I hope the world does not abandon or turn a blind eye to those who need our help in this time of urgency.
