Friends, it’s Memorial Day in the United States, a weekend when Americans think a lot about their country and what it means.
This new song just arrived from two of our dearest friends, Mae Erlewine and Seth Bernard. It’s about people taking a stand, sort of as they have been around the world since the Arab Spring and the Occupy movement and the Keystone uprising began. It mentions 350.org founder Bill McKibben, but the first and most important reference, right at the beginning of the song, is to woody Guthrie, who was a great American protest singer and songwriter–and the man who composed that people’s anthem “This Land Was Made for You and Me.”
Anyway, have a great weekend, and listen to some music!
