Barry Dwork - Silver Spring, MD
The Silver Lining that can Turn Dark Black Nights into Yellow Sunshining Days
Nobody tells us that life was never meant to be fair
Bad things have happened to good people since the beginning of humankind
Daniel’s murder, and all other victims of terrorism and evil, have experienced some of the worst evil in human beings.
But God created a world with good as well as evil in it.
The ongoing dialogue between Judaea Pearl and Akbar Ahmed is one silver lining that is turning darkness into sunlight. The conversations discussing the Jewish and Muslim perspectives on topics that are sometimes emotionally charged, are conducted with respect for each other’s differences.
The annual World Music Days demonstrates how music as the universal language can shine a light into every dark corner of the world.

Daniel Pearl World Music Days, October 6-15, 2006. Daniel Pearl was a Wall Street Journal reporter who was kidnapped and brutally murdered in Pakistan in February 2002. Daniel was also a violinist who was known for taking his violin everywhere he traveled. His family felt it would be a fitting tribute to invite people from all over the world to create or dedicate a musical event each year, near October 10 (Daniel’s birthday) for 10 days of worldwide “Harmony for Humanity”, ringing the world with the universal language of music in repudiation of hatred and cruelty and in celebration of tolerance, friendship and respect for diversity.

Greg Phillips - Washington, DC
Daniel Pearl Cheered Me Up On the Worst Day Of My Life! In 1998 I was badly injured the day I flew from Washington D.C. to Dublin to start working on a rock and roll tour called G3 that included world class guitarists (such as my favorite) Michael Schenker, Uli Jon Roth & Joe Satriani. As soon as I got to Dublin I checked in with the tour manager and then promtly hopped in a taxi cab to the hospital, then back to the Arena to try to work as a keyboard tech and roadie. Do to my injuries I was unable to lift anything and after like a week when we were in London I was told by the manager that they "coudn't carry around a wounded soldier", and that they were replacing me with someone who would also take my bed on the tour bus! So there I was stranded in London, not paid and my body was in so much pain & I had a broken heart from my shattered dreams and humiliated! I was told by Delta airlines that I could get an emergency flight back to the U.S. (only because I had medical documentation from Dublin) but that I had to catch the flight in Paris, so I took a train I think it's called The Euro Star, and as soon as I got on the train the other passengers were avoiding me cause I looked kind of like a homeless guy and smelled like alcohol, but one very nice guy reached out to me and asked me what had happened. He cheered me up talking to me the whole trip and he got my mind off of what had just happened to me and onto the good experiences we both had with music and traveling. He also gave me his Wall Street Journal card and when I got home I put it with my important, & meaningful things from the trip. 4 years later as I was watching TV I saw a news reporter held captive in Pakistan and thought he looked like the guy I was with on the train but he was missing his glasses and looked a little different, so I pulled out the card and the name on it was Daniel Pearl. He really was a nice guy, and I had a great time with him and later wrote a song about that experience. Those 3 hours on the train alone would have been total hell, thinking about being kicked off of that tour and the what ifs going through my mind, because before Danny reached out to me, I was having a nervous breakdown big time, so the very least I can do now is try to give back in some way in honor of him. I had the pleasure of meeting Marianne at a new Museum in D.C. called The Newseum where I work and told her about my time with Danny. I'm so grateful to learn about the Daniel Pearl Foundation and their World Music Days, and honored to be involved with them in my own little way.

Hejira - Renton, WA
We feel that by using a strong Middle Eastern beat, combined with elements of classical & jazz our music makes a global statement that diversity in music is beautiful and we all ONE race - the HUMAN race.  We are all more similar than different.


HYIM and his band - San Francisco, CA
Daniel understood music's ability to immediately transcend differences and provide a space for deep listening and collective creativity. In other words: music creates peace. I will be dedicating my performance in October to Daniel Pearl. My song, "Let Out A Little Peace 2012 (Remix),” is a song I believe he would be proud to be connected to. We all have a world that we want to see: a world where peace is commonplace and children are able to flourish unafraid. I did not know Daniel personally, but reading about him and seeing the amazing ways he continues to inspire people to work on behalf of this world we cherish is mind blowing. I have been blessed to have traveled to about thirty countries in my short life, and indeed music was the primary vehicle upon which I connected to the people I met. "Breath by breath, you must create this peace; and we will create this peace one by one. Accept our grief without vengeance and let this cycle cease." Daniel did that in his own way: word by word, story by story. He is a modern hero, and his legacy is clearly continuing to shape and change the world. For all of our children yet to come: selah, shalom, asalaam, namaste, paz, peace.Hyim
