Peter Gabriel - Biko

I have to admit.  During the entire Stubbenville rape saga I kept thinking of this song.



Not everything in the song.  Gabriel was singing about apartheid and the death of Steven Biko at the hands of the police.

But this:


You can blow out a candle
But you can't blow out a fire
Once the flames begin to catch
The wind will blow it higher

And the eyes of the world are
watching now
watching now


There are thousands of Steubenvilles out there.  Some more horrible.
But with some luck we can make some changes.
