Over 50 years ago, Bob Dylan recorded “Blowin’ in the Wind,” a song that reflected many of the challenges of the 1960s.
You probably remember some of the lyrics:
How many times must the cannon balls fly
Before they’re forever banned?
How many years can some people exist
Before they’re allowed to be free?
How many times can a man turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn’t see?
How many ears must one man have
Before he can hear people cry?
How many deaths will it take ‘til he knows
That too many people have died?
The answer, my friend, is blowin’ in the wind
The answer is blowin’ in the wind.
Not much has changed over the years, has it? These are great questions to ask our current congressional representatives and other public servants, especially President Trump.
It’s time for all of us to take these questions seriously and act on them so that 50 years from now, our children and grandchildren won’t still be looking for the answers “blowin’ in the wind.”
