I have often wondered what it would have been like to be an adult in the 1960s, what with the crazy headlines of war, protests, riots, assassinations, and struggles for civil rights. Half a century later, my imagination doesn’t have to work very hard.
In 1968, Sly and the Family Stone released the song “Everyday People” as a call for peace. Recently, the great organization, Playing for Change, released a timely rendition of the classic song featuring celebrities and school children.
Today, I share it with hope, and for hope. Hope that I somehow correctly embedded the video so that it shows up on the blog and in the automatic emails, but more importantly, hope that we might learn to live together. “And so on and so on and scooby dooby doo.”
