I Protest!!! Vigorously!!!!

  • Pink captures President Bush's callous disregard with heart-rending accuracy. This song makes me cry every time I hear it.
  • Jackson Brown's new song is fabulous! Lives in the Balance truly touches on the choices facing America today.
  • An Arlo Guthrie classic! You'd be amazed at how it fits our modern war ethics.
  • Bruce Hornsby's finest. We are treating the Katrina survivors the same way.
  • By Phil Ochs. Not what you'd think. He wrote it following the murder of three civil rights workers in the mid '60's. Still pertinent today, I fear.
  • This one's by Lindsay Buckingham. All hail the 4th estate!
  • Song by the late, great Harry Chapin. It references Vietman, but remains pithy.
  • By Bright Eyes. One of the best protest songs to come along in years.
  • From the musical, 1776.
    Check it out - the reference may be Revolutionary War era, but the sentiment rocks!

The sounds and sights you've written about can easily be pictured. Sharing it with your child will bring things you wouldn't have noticed before. Wonderful~

The Fat Lady Sings

Beautifully put, my dear. I always felt that the process of discovery would be what I'd want to share most with a child. Plucking a daisy, tasting sour grass for the first time, watching clouds shape and reshape against a cerulean sky. You are indeed blessed to be gifted with that opportunity.


Lovely way of describing a day. You are right about seeing it with your child...and through its eyes. It gains a different perspective every time.
