#107 Livin' in the Future by Bruce Springsteen

"I'm Rollin' through town
A lost cowboy at sundown 
got my monkey on a leash 
got my ear turned to the ground 
My Faith's been torn asunder 
tell me is that rolling thunder 
Or just a sinking sound of something righteous going under"

A call to action.  Everyone still says "we live in the greatest country";"this is the land of the free". Well is it? Just because that is what it's supposed to be, it does not mean we're living up to that ideal in any way. In some areas we have made a lot of progress toward giving that level of personal freedom, and in other ways we have taken it back from certain people in certain groups at certain times as is deemed necessary. It is no longer just a fear of what may happen in our uncertain world, but it is now the reality we live in. Our country and the rest of the world has taken us many steps back in terms of progress as a civilization. We can no longer just sit back and make the claims mentioned at the outset and expect it to be so. We need to demand more from ourselves, our leaders, and each other.
