When I was a kid, I loved the series of musical cartoon vignettes called Schoolhouse Rock. The cartoons were aimed at helping children learn their lessons facilitated by music. The subset of SR aimed at History lessons was called America Rocks. Those cartoons and accompanying songs gave you such an idealistic view of America and gave me a sense of pride in what we had accomplished as a nation.
Given the current state of political affairs, the direction of our nation’s government, and the lack of leadership among our political leaders, I’ve composed a non-partisan commentary on the current state of the nation’s affairs entitled America Used to Rock.
