From an email from Circle Times:
The Veteran Pentacle Quest now has a Song!
Inspired by the Quest and Sgt. Patrick Stewart's
story, Pagan singer and songwriter Celia created "Symbol"
Played at Veteran Pentacle Quest support
rallies and circles, it is a spirited call to the US Department
of Veterans Affairs to honor Sgt. Patrick Stewart with
his emblem of belief, the Pentacle, on his memorial plaque.
Celia dedicated this song to the late Sgt. Patrick Stewart,
his widow Roberta, and their family.
This Anthem of the Quest tells of religious
freedom issues connected with the Pentacle. It powerfully
proclaims the need to uphold America's First Amendment
Symbol was greatly acclaimed at its debut
performance at this year's Pagan Spirit Gathering, the
national festival that Circle Sanctuary holds each year
at Wisteria in Ohio. Pagan veterans who want the Pentacle
on their grave markers after death stood by Selena Fox
and Celia as Celia sang it to the PSG Community.
Symbol also was enthusiastically received
when Celia performed it a few days later at the July 4th
Religious Rights Rally in Washington, DC.
Following these initial performances of
Symbol, Celia became aware that she needed to made a small,
but important, change in the original lyrics in order
to identify that it is the VA rather than the Pentagon
that is the federal agency responsible for the Pentacle
not yet being on Pagan veteran grave markers.
Celia has just released her updated version
of "Symbol." The word "Pentagon" has
been replaced by "VA guns."
This new version of Symbol was recorded
live on Friday night, July 28 at this year's  Green
Spirit Gathering at Circle Sanctuary Nature Preserve in
Wisconsin. The recording concludes with voices of Pagan
veterans and other festival participants joining her in
This new rendition of Symbol is now available
at: http://www.celiaonline.com/symbol.htm as a CD single
($3 or 4 for $10, plus shipping)or as an MP3 download
Celia is donating $1 of every download and
every CD to the Lady Liberty League to support Roberta
Stewart and Circle Sanctuary in the Quest to get the Pentacle
added to the National Cemetery Administration's list of
emblems of belief that can be included on VA-issued headstones,
markers, and plaques for deceased veterans.
Please help us get the word out about Symbol!
Forward this email to lists, websites, and others you
know who may be interested.
