First, this post is not meant to be political – it has totally and absolutely nothing to do with politics so please . . PLEASE . . do not make it about politics!
I can remember two times before today when I heard a song on the radio that just stopped me in my tracks. The first was Tim McGraw & Faith Hill’s “It’s Your Love“. Vince was living in Kentucky. I was still in Lake Charles. I was flying out of the Lafayette, LA airport to Kentucky and I was driving to the airport when I heard that song for the first time. I couldn’t stop thinking about it and when I got to Kentucky, I told Vince “You have to hear this song!” We played it over and over that weekend and I still love it.
The second song was Joey & Rory’s “That’s Important to Me“. That song just sums up what’s important to me.
Today, on the way to Discount Tire, I had the radio on in the car and for the first time, I heard Thomas Rhett’s “Be a Light“. It isn’t a new song but I don’t have the radio on that much. That link is to a youtube video of the song. The lyrics are here. I keep listening to those words and thinking if we all taught this to our children and grandchildren, what a difference the world would be. There ain’t that much difference between you and me but we seem to have lost the ability to agree to disagree. It’s one way or the other – no in between; no listening . . just talking and screaming.
When you do somebody wrong, make it right! I think we’ve also lost our ability to ever see that we’re wrong. We’re always right . . the other person is wrong.
That song really has me thinking about a few things in my own life.
How I wish I had this Bose surround sound hooked up, had a CD player and the CD. I’d have this song playing all day!
