Visiting A Vet On Memorial Day

Marvin Gaye song the National Anthem from his soul. The spirit of struggle and freedom, to pursue the American dream, in the land of the free, rang out and yet he was also celebrating America. Brilliant. It's why we fight for America and lift her up and support and memorialize our soldiers
I stopped by to say hello to my fellow Vet.. Staff/Sgt Martin today.
Surprised him at his home. We had a good chat. His handy man Curt broke
out the, "Hammer Dance"

Memorial Day: Why Can't We Live Together?

I am moved to new fresh tears of sorrow and pain as I watched this video from my," Too Legit To Quit" album. The thing that hurts the most is I made that song before there was an," LA Riot" and after the succesful,"Please Hammer Don't Hurt'em Worldwide Tour". I have always taken great gratification in knowing that my spirit stays connected to the pain and condition of the people, to the common man. It is my burden and my joy. My purpose.

While my dance and visual arts have always brought joy to millions (by the grace of God), songs like,"Help The Children, Pray, Do Not Pass Me By, Going Up Yonder, Keep On, and other socially inspired songs that I made have brought me my greatest joy. I felt in my spirit at that time that the our country was headed towards civil discord and division, as I feel in my spirit today even more. The duration (time in years) of the current war, combined with declining educational opportunities, economically driven incarceration, lack of hope and never ending poverty, is nurturing a new generation and culture of violence. This culture of violence will know no boundaries and will include race, gender, sexuality and religion. We must end this war, bring our Troops home and deal with the ills of our society and the frustration and pain of our families here in America.
