Because she says it all so well, I’m giving the posting stage to the incredible Buffy Sainte Marie who sings straight to the heart of things. The lyrics are available on YouTube. While there what might be judged a better vocal recording of “My Country ‘Tis of Thy People You’re Dying” is available, it is evident what this particular selection has to offer. Consider this for comments: When politicians fail to do more than wage war, is it imperative that artists of all genres step up to the high stakes table for creating positive change? What is the role of the artist in a culture? Is it just to create beautiful home decor? Or is it fundamentally something much more?

Nothing stands alone. All things are connected. Just because human behavior has been one way does not mean it must remain such. We have choices.
