  Are people familiar with the Don't Laugh At Me (DLAM) project founded by Peter Yarrow of  the great folk group Peter, Paul and Mary? Its now Operation  Respect.Org.
 
"Don't Laugh At Me" is a song from PP&M'sd album In These Times which came out in 2004. Its opening verse is : "Don't laugh at me, don't call me names/don't get your pleasure from my pain/In God's eyes we're all the same/some day we'll all have perfect wings/don't laugh at me." And goes on to cite examples of those who may face prejudice. A truly great song. The  album also contains a song about Matthew Shepherd "Jesus is on the Wire"( a subject also addressed by Melissa Etheridge in her song "Scarecrow.").

 Peter  Paul and Mary have been addressing issues of humanity and social justice since  they appeared with Dr. Martin Luther King at the  1963 March on Washington. The curriculum packet is a must have for educators working with issues of tolerance and justice.
 
Would like to see Aly and Aj do that song, as they addressed the issue so well in their song "Sticks and Stones."
