Listening Post



Chances are you've had a kind of personal soundtrack playing in your head throughout the past 24 hours. The events we all witnessed yesterday lent themselves to music in ways that defy description. I know that each of you had a song or two that you felt fit the collective moment perfectly.

For me, it was a song that I honestly hadn't heard or even thought about in almost two decades. The closing track from Genesis's self-titled 1983 album.

Here's It's Gonna Get Better.

For me the song was Des'ree's 'You Gotta Be'.There's so much hope but we all gotta be bold and tough and strong and let President Obama (God I love that!)lead us to where we want to be.
