I woke up with the Beatles "Blackbird" in my head one morning this week. I ended up singing it all day long. Dear Gods, what are you trying to tell me? I looked up the mean of the lyrics to discover Paul McCartney was inspired by the civil rights movement at the time. Slavery and racial inequality are a horrific stain on our country. Martin Luther King Jr. Day is tomorrow and I feel a haunting reverence for the day as I have never felt before. Fight on.
