Everybody Get Together

This morning, while making my way fully masked through the grocery store, the music playing subtly in the background, cut through the serene detergent aisle like a hot knife through butter. The tune playing no longer seemed subtle. It seemed purposeful.

You will recognize it as a song from the 60’s, one that became popular during troubled times marked by assassinations, civil unrest and rioting.

Sound familiar?

How did our country get through it back then?

How will we get through it today?

Well, The Youngbloods’, “Get Together”, delivered a powerful message over 50 years ago. The message is as meaningful today.
