Joe Wueke asked me to do something musical for The Hoping Machine project. Not being much of a marcher, I made this. Arlo said in an interview with Tavis that movements start with people and not leaders. Or something like that. That seems to be right to me. We are individuals going about our lives and yet when some dark spirit or force or juju disturbs what we share, we start to stand up individually and in groups. Then some leaders emerge and we get stuff done. IMO, THAT is what makes America great and all people great.

Whatever the faults and mistakes, I love this country. Because I've seen a lot of hate cluster bombs lately, I decided to make a love song to America. It is a medley of tunes we all know and share and that seems right too. The images are pilfered from Google as usual. This was recorded in a way that doesn't allow me to fix mistakes and so they are part of it just like this country. We make 'em and we learn from 'em and we move on.

For what it's worth, I hope this helps.
