I Will Never Surrender

Foo Fighters – The Pretender

This is one of my “fight” songs.

I have many.

Feel the music.

Fight for the people you love.

I’m posting this to remind myself and others – that speaking out on behalf of people in need, I know, is never easy. Sometimes it’s even dangerous – but when hate seems to be everywhere, we can’t rest.

We must be brave. We have to stand up, draw a line in the sand, and take exception to that hate.

We must tell the misguided, ignorant, confused, mean, cruel and evil to back the fuck up.

In anyway that we can, we must protect those who are less-fortunate and those who are considered “less than”, because I believe that THEY are the “most” of all of us. They decide who we really are as human beings. Let that sink in for a moment.

Before I begin to get deep, dark and dirty, know that at the heart of ALL that I do (say and write), is not just for my child’s sake alone – but for all of those who are struggling in a world of hurt.

I have found that in the quiet of the night, when my mind is not at rest, ideas come to me – and I accept that these thoughts come into existence almost like an outside force and as a way towards making the world a better place – in spite of those who build walls to keep people in and to also keep people out.

No matter how awful or sad it gets, we can’t ever give up. We’ve heard it said, It’s always darkest before the dawn. And so from time to time, as we wage what seems to be an all-consuming battle against the darkness, we must remain vigilant that we don’t lose ourselves as we make our way to the light of a new day.
