Pull out your kleenex and listen to Bruce Springsteen's reprisal of a song he wrote years ago about the killing of Amadou Diallo. Apparently Springsteen added it to his concert performance for the first time in Tampa last week and then posted the video on youtube. Friday at a concert in Philadelphia he went public with why: "This is for Trayvon."
I am reminded of a quote from Madeleine L'Engle:
Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
