Straws Announcement

Posted on Oct.27, 2002 under Straws

Bill Ward announced today, Sunday, October 27 at 2:00 am PST/Daylight Savings Time that he will release about 2,000 commemorative CD packages, containing one song, “Straws.” The artwork for “Straws” is near completion and roughly 1,000 CD packages will be delivered before December 1.

Since the release of “Straws” on the Internet, the work to release the CD packages has been underway. Each CD will be numbered, it’s a limited edition, and the packages are not for sale. At least 1,000 copies will be sent first to Bill’s family, friends, fellow musicians, producers, engineers, journalists and some radio stations. Further recipients include establishments for humanitarian causes, peace support groups and individuals, and finally governmental heads of state or countries across the world. Following is a quote from Ward, which will appear on the back of the CD package:

In our arrogance, we often feel the desire to beat on our own chests, in celebration of how far, as human beings, we’ve progressed.

However, let us not do that so quickly.

Not as long as continuing wars permeate, destroy and threaten the existence of life itself on our planet.

Instead can we stop briefly and see how utterly archaic we really can be.

Perhaps when the word “war” means nothing to any living souls anywhere.

A time when war has become a thing of the past.

Perhaps then we can give ourselves some polite applause.

For real human progress.

There are no details yet on where the other 1,000 CD packages will go.
