The heart breaking reality is that there is an increase in poverty and decrease in opportunity for the nation’s youth. The youth of today is told to work hard and go to college, yet after graduating they find few permanent job opportunities? Many of the jobs that are available are part-time, temporary or contract labor? These insecure jobs pay one-third of what their fathers earned? The low pay makes living at home the only viable option? Poor economic conditions persist for over 60 years in a row?
Doesnt reading all this make you a little sentimental. And what better way to magnify our emotions than with music?
