It can be easy to let the troubles of the world get to you. At least it can be for me. When I look at the world situation, the theater of the absurd that is the current Congress, and the band of wackos vying for the Republican presidential nomination, it’s easy to feel depressed. What always amazes me is how much power music has to heal, and how it can make me feel that there actually is hope.
I posted this on Facebook last week, but there is not 100% overlap between my blog readers and my Facebook friends. And in any case, this is so appropriate as Chanukah ends and as we are in the middle of the Twelve Days of Christmas.
Another great inspiration to me has been Holly Near. “The Great Peace March” is a song that brings tears to my eyes and gives me hope. Please listen and be uplifted!
