In 2014, the 3oth Anniversary of Live Aid will be celebrated, I’m sure. 1984 was a self-defining Christmas for me and for a lot of my generation because we were forced for the first time in our hedonistic generation’s existence to think about someone else in another part of the globe. The artists had the guts to put this in our faces and to this day I still respect them for it.
In recent years we’ve seen so much focus on the self among our own youth that somewhere along the road, they didn’t find that same sense of purpose–yet. It appears to me that we are so focused on ourselves and pissed about what our government is doing in this country that we’ve lost sight of ONE fact. WE CAN CHANGE THINGS–ONE PERSON AT A TIME. However we must start with ourselves. We can and must lead the way for a younger generation. We cannot leave this up to others because it is not their job to do our job. It is up to us to impart a sense of what is good and what is right into our children, our grandchildren and in a few more years–maybe our great-grandchildren.
Have a great weekend, and enjoy the video. I hope it renews the fire in your soul that we had back when were younger.
