We hear a new musical version of a poem depicting the human suffering in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and talk with the poet Joan Burstyn.  The musical work is entitled Lament of Two Mothers, composed by Judy Cohen Stanton.  The pianist is Maryna Mazhukova.  Kathleen Roland sings the part of the Israeli mother; Paula Pepperstone sings the part of the Palestinian mother.  Mindy Todd hosts on the Point.
