By Jane Baker with Utah Campaign to Abolish Nuclear Weapons UCAN

It was a rainy night, but under the cover of the Pavilion in Liberty Park,  Salt Lake City, the Burundi, Congolese, and Taiko drummers sent out a clear and joyful message that we were beating the bombs.  We danced and danced to the heart rhythms,  and we sang and sang the wonderful song of Ed McCurdy (1950) “Last night I had the strangest dream I’d ever dreamed before , I dreamed the world had all agreed to put an end to war”.  And overhead wafted the banner of Pope Francis’s brave words “Manufacturers of weapons, are merchants of death”!
