‘We Are The World’ …. “🌎 We Always have Been, We Always will Be 🌎 …. “!!

TURBULENT TIMES

~We Always have Been, We Always will Be~

I find myself so pulled by the negativity and awful events taking place in our world nowadays. Sometimes it’s so overwhelming that I can’t really breathe.

I can’t fathom or wrap my head around the level of inhumanity, greed, vileness, evil, violence, crime, injustice and so much more that inhabits this world.

Music helps me.

Here’s an example.

THIS IS AMERICA

Quite a strong message.

Here’s the Saturday Night Performance.

The title is right on target:

This IS America!

Be forewarned.

Some content may be offensive to some who may shy away from the sad reality.

I had to look up the lyrics to get the full meaning.

THIS IS AMERICA

Quite a strong message within this music video.

Indeed, have to watch it more than once! In a blunt manner, not sparing any punches, Donald Glover presents the true and crude reality of America.

The title is right on target:

This IS America!

Be forewarned. Some content may be offensive to some who may shy away from the sad reality.

The video speaks for itself.

RedLineBOn the latest Saturday Night Live, Childish Gambino – the musical pseudonym for actor and Atlanta creator Donald Glover – released “This Is America,” a searing social critique of pop culture and the experience of being black in America today.

~DONALD GLOVER~

The actor, who has been riding high these days with both his series “Atlanta” and his role as young Lando Calrissian in the forthcoming “Solo: A Star Wars Story,” both hosted “Saturday Night Live” and was the musical guest as his rap/R&B alter ego, ‘Childish Gambino‘.
Glover as Gambino won a Grammy this year for best traditional R&B performance for his song “Redbone” and premiered two new songs on “SNL,” titled “Saturday” and “This Is America.”

Here’s what you need to know about the music video that has many hailing Glover/Gambino as a genius:
You will need to watch it more than once
Directed by “Atlanta” director Hiro Murai, the video is pretty surreal and packed full of messages.
It’s expansive and filmed in a warehouse, which allows for a lot of action.
As much as your eye will be drawn to Glover as a shirtless Gambino, pay close attention also to what is happening in the background.

~It takes on gun violence in America~
Murders occur, but the guns are treated more delicately than human lives in the video — a strong statement given the current debate over gun control.
The imagery also has sparked conversation about several other themes, including police brutality, social media habits and what people are really paying attention to in the United States.
“The fact that Childish Gambino’s ‘This is America‘ tackles police brutality, gun violence, media misdirection, and the use of African Americans as a brand shield, all while dancing in Jim Crow-style caricature, shows a transcendence or mere performance and demands attention,” one person tweeted.

“As it appears in … full read/full credit”

~NOWHERE MAN~

THE BEATLES

I was a young teenager in Puerto Rico when The Beatles came to America in 1964. Needless to say I was totally hooked on their music.

Their music gave me sense of belonging. Their music represented me and my generation.

To this day, I enjoy, respect and follow The Beatles’ music.

I was surprised when I found this ‘meme’, listened to the lyrics and realized how ‘prophetic’ the words were!

Nowhere Man” is a song by The Beatles, from their album Rubber Soul.

The song was written by John Lennon (credited to Lennon – McCartney).

It was recorded on 21 and 22 October 1965.

Nowhere Man” is among the very first Beatles’ songs to be entirely unrelated to romance or love and marks a notable instance of Lennon’s philosophically-oriented songwriting.

~NOWHERE MAN LYRICS~

He’s a real nowhere man
Sitting in his nowhere land
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Doesn’t have a point of view
Knows not where he’s going to
Isn’t he a bit like you and me?
Nowhere man please listen
You don’t know what you’re missing
Nowhere man, The world is at your command
He’s as blind as he can be
Just sees what he wants to see
Nowhere man, can you see me at all
Nowhere man don’t worry
Take your time, don’t hurry
Leave it all till somebody else
Lends you a hand
Ah, la, la, la, la …
Doesn’t have a point of view
Knows not where he’s going to
Isn’t he a bit like you and me?
Nowhere man please listen
You don’t know what you’re missing
Nowhere man, The world is at your command
Ah, la, la, la, la
He’s a real nowhere man
Sitting in his nowhere land
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody
Making all his nowhere plans for nobody

Emma González …. “🙏🏽 March for Our Lives …. Eloquent, Stirring Speech …. What a Strong Message! 🙏🏽 …. “!!


~~March 25, 2018~~ 

… ‘and the children shall lead’ … 

WOULD NEVER

Ever since Valentine’s Day 2018, the day the Parkland, Florida mass shooting happened, this phrase has become ingrained in my mind.

These teenagers are taking over this sad American reality.

Like Emma, there are plenty others. There are those we know already by name who have been thrust into adulthood too soon. They have taken their role as serious as the reality is.

They are claiming their future as they should.

Here’s one of the many examples seen on March 24, 2018 …

MARCH FOR OUR LIVES
