but it feels like there’s nothing to be joyous about. I’m too awake and too aware. It feels like every time I chose to pay attention to the news. Especially in regards to Palestine and Israel, there’s always something happening that is devastatingly bad that I don’t want to sing. I don’t feel joy just utter frustration that I am here. Able bodied and fully committed to doing something…but I have no clue what would help…so I sing.
Because singing through the pain, the confusion, and the bullshit is a lot better than being complacent and unmoved by violence and brutality.
