Flashback Friday #FBF – Marvin Gaye – What’s Going On #BLM

Picket lines and picket signs. Don’t punish me with brutality. Talk to me. So you can see

Marvin Gaye – What’s Going On

A song from the past can easily speak to the present. Marvin Gaye does that and so much more in this track.

Sonic Saturday: Gary Clark, Jr. – This Land #BLM

This is a strong protest song that brings up the issue of racism in America. In “This Land” it talks about a black man who is American and fights those who think otherwise. Gary Clark, Jr. tells a strong story here.

Quote Of The Day

War means tears to thousands of mothers eyes
When their sons go to fight
And lose their lives

I said, war, huh good god, why’all
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing say it again

War, whoa, lord
What is it good for
Absolutely nothing, listen to me

War – A song performed by Edwin Starr and written by Norman Whitfield and Barrett Strong

March For Our Lives, Time To Take A Stand

On March 24, the kids and families of March For Our Lives will take to the streets of Washington DC to demand that their lives and safety become a priority and that we end gun violence and mass shootings in our schools today. For More visit March For Our Lives – March 24, 2018

I fully support this effort to demand that the lives and safety of kids and families are a priority. Gun violence has become a problem around the country and around the world. It’s time that this issue is taken seriously. The students who are leading this are a inspiration and give me hope for the present and the future.

Marching On

Marching on for a cause requires courage, determination and the desire to challenge power. People who want life, liberty and happiness for all do so because they want a life better for their sons and daughters than they had. We live in a time when fear and greed are so much a part of the agenda of some that they are making life hell for others. Marching on places like DC and NYC and all places in between means making ones voice heard. In my mind we need more marching, more people part of the process that have been held back in years past. Being for life means being sure everyone has the things needed to improve their situation. Today we should never forget Selma, Birmingham, Stonewall, Tiananmen Square, Cairo and so many other places that have shown us the way to create a more perfect place in many places around the world. Fight the power good people.
