Dear afghans for Afghans,

I'm sending 53 pairs of my hand-knit wool baby socks for Cure Hospital. Their
rainbow colors reminded me of a song we sang in "Young Friends" many years
ago -- an old Pete Seeger song "O, Had I a Golden Thread" which sounds like an
anthem for afghans for Afghans:

"O had I a golden thread and needle so fine
I'd weave a magic strand of rainbow design,
Of rainbow design

In it I'd weave the bravery of women giving birth
In it I'd weave the innocence of children over all the earth,
Children of all earth

Far over the water I'd reach my magic band
To every city, through ev'ry single land
Through ev'ry land

Show my brothers and my sisters my rainbow design
Bind up this sorry world with hand and heart and mind
Hand and heart and mind

Far over the waters I'd reach my magic band
To every human being so they would understand
So they would understand"

(Song by Pete Seeger, copyright 1959, Stormking Music Inc.)
