In increasingly turbulent times globally speaking, a few briefs thoughts today.
Regardless of the nation in which you live, the one from which you came, your political affiliation, or your religious beliefs, there is a troubling trend – Our world seems to be losing tolerance – an acknowledgement that contrasting viewpoints can come from reasonable, intelligent, good-hearted people.
Musicians and comedians are often capable of incisive, honest commentary on the human condition, made more palpable masked in their chosen artistic medium.
A little insight from a great songwriter on the aforementioned topic:
“Now with the wisdom of years, I try to reason things out
And the only people I fear are those who never have doubts
Save us all from arrogant men, and all the causes they’re for
I won’t be righteous again, I’m not that sure anymore”
~ Billy Joel from “Shades of Grey” off of his album River of Dreams
