Times Are Changing


If you’ve been listening to me since I started this Sounds of Change blog, you know I’m a classic rock guy – Beatles, The Eagles, Bob Seger, Springsteen. Some of you in your comments on my blog have said I need to get a little more up-to-date. I will work on that and will have some messages tied to some more current music in the weeks ahead.

Today, I’d like to tie in a couple of songs to what’s happening in the United States and in many parts of the world. It’s been a challenging time with some pretty traumatic raw news –  the #metoo movement, #timesup, #menext, #neveragain.  Young people are speaking up. Women are speaking up. And songs are resonating with the current change that’s going on in society for the good – songs like Sara Bareilles’ “Brave.” I think a powerful line is “Show me how big is your brave” or “Say what you want to say, and let the words fall out.” Katy Perry’s Roar-  Eye of the Tiger – it’s a powerful song to exercise to, dance to, and  right now. to listen to, as we go through changes in our society and our behavior. I encourage you to listen to these songs and hopefully they’ll resonate with you and help all of us be better people.

    This is fantastic! Thank you for setting my mindset for the day and for making me remember to keep faith in myself and others!

    Change comes when people speak out. One of our primary duties on this earth is to be moral agents. to stand up for good. Without that the “Hitler’s” of this world will go unchecked. Bruce, I am with you – let it roar!
