When History Seems Current, “Peace In The Valley”

By Alfredo Ayul

During his last appearance on the Ed Sullivan Show on January 6, 1957, Elvis had dedicated his last song “Peace in the Valley” to the people of Hungary who were in the wake of the 1956 anti-Soviet October Revolution. 

Elvis and his manager, Colonel Tom Parker, decided that the singer should lend his support to the country’s fight against communism. Ed Sullivan even joined Elvis and asked the television audience to donate to the Hungarian relief efforts.

 In recognition in March 2011 and for his support of the Hungarian revolution of 1956, Elvis Presley was declared an honorary citizen of Budapest, Hungary. In April of that same year, the Budapest city council also proposed that a park be named after Elvis Presley.

Needless to say, the money that came as a donation was very, very high. Many of the non-degradable and non-perishable supplies that were purchased with those donations served the community for more than 30 years!!
