American Prayer

TODAY is music day, and I was prepared to share another jazz great when I came upon this beautiful, moving prayer by Dave Stewart.

As an Englishman, I'm not an expert in all the intricate details of American politics. But as an artist, I understand how rare it is to inspire a connection to a bigger idea or purpose. This video isn't so much an endorsement of Barack Obama as much as it is a celebration of all those who have picked up a sign, who have registered to vote and are working to make the world a better place. So as Senator Barack Obama ascends to the mountain top, let us not forget all of the others who for the past 40 years have sung anthems of change to make this moment possible.

Thy Will be done, continues to be our prayer.

We will hold you in our prayers until you are safely at home with your hubby :-)
