It is possible to become discouraged about the injustice we see everywhere. But God did not promise us that the world would be humane and just. He gives us the gift of life and allows us to choose the way we will use our limited time on earth. It is an awesome opportunity.
Songs won’t save the planet, but then, neither will books or speeches…Songs are sneaky things. They can slip across borders, proliferate in prisons. Penetrate hard shells. If rulers really knew how important songs could be, they would probably have done something to Woody Guthrie and me and other people long ago.
