A Change Is Gonna Come, Sam Cooke, 1963
Seems like things have been particularly difficult the last few weeks. Hamas/Israeli conflict, execution of an American journalist by ISIS, Ferguson, Mo. Afghanistan, veterans care at home, natural disasters- mudslides, forest fires, bizarre climate change whether, drought, floods, loss of Robin Williams, Ebola virus, Nigerian girls kidnapped, biased media coverage, ignorance/intolerance, pervasive violence in everything from sports to gaming to "entertainment," Immigration/humanitarian crises...
I was telling some young friends the other day to remember what I learned a while back, that no matter how bad things seem, how down/depressed we get, that some things will always be here. This Sam Cooke tune is timeless and ever available.
