Stop, Children What's That Sound? Everybody Look What's Going Down.

Everybody look what's going down, if you see something say something. Don't agonize, organize. I'm thankful that in my community we are starting to band together and support each other.

We will not preemptively complain or march. We will give and hope for the best responsible actions of the US president elect. We hope he will be a great president but are preparing for the case in which we must speak out and take action to protect our constitutional rights.

With the recent Supreme Court ruling on the Voting Rights Act and an unsteady leader whose appointments are proving he means to make good on disenfranchising the colored peoples and marginalizing most of the middle class or striving to be middle class it is important that we stay alert.

It's both empowering and sad but we are in another turmoil reflective on the 1960's. Some think the 60's rebellion achieved nothing so why rebel but this is not the case. We don't have drafts because of the 60's, women work, we have greater racial equality but we aren't there yet.

Im not encouraging anyone to rebel but I am encouraging you to have a voice and not tune out. It's very tempting to tune out. It's tempting to feel defeated. But remember what you were fighting for in the first place when you wanted Bernie. That dream doesn't die because the worst possible person in your mind won. It means you have to fight that much harder.

IT MEANS THE WEIGHT IS NOW ON YOUR SHOULDERS.

Be the change you want to see. And when they go low, we go high!

    interestingly that song is not actually about the vietnam war
    Though "For What It's Worth" is often mistaken as an anti-war song, Stephen Stills was inspired to write the track because of the Sunset Strip curfew riots in November 1966. The trouble, which started during the early stages of the counterculture era, was in the same year Buffalo Springfield had become the house band at the Whisky a Go Go on the Sunset Strip in Los Angeles.[4]

    Is this still revelant?

      Of course. It's about the civil right protests and movement and police reaction. That's why I picked this particular video as it depicts that.

      This is the mess we are currently involved in. Black lives matter, a racist candidate winning office. This is the front line. Step out of line, the man come and take you away.

      We have a leader who is at war with the media. Step out of line and you may very well be taken away.

      Paranoia strikes deep is also true. You can't let it get to you and have to figure out a way to rise above.

      I'm not a victim. But I am preparing to defend the rights of anyone who may fall under attack.

    That's cool seeing Stephen Stills and Neil Young back before they were with Crosby, Stills, Nash, & Young.
