I posted Bridge Over Troubled Water written by Paul Simon and performed by Simon and Garfunkel for Song Lyric Sunday

If I had remembered today’s #JusJoJan was silence, I could have had a two-fer.  The Sound of Silence was also written by Paul Simon and originally performed by Simon and Garfunkel.  To shake things up, I picked the cover by Disturbed.

Notice the silent beginning?  I checked the volume on my media player twice to make sure the video was working.  Chilling silence but in a good way.

When narrow-minded folks label in the way they often do, they must not realize that the human connections defy any label.  We are the world.

Folk duo covered by alt rock.  Symphony merging with metal royalty.  These are two of many other examples.

Sometimes it feels like from our earliest memories we are put in boxes, labeled and closed with tape.  Society thinks we are not supposed to get out of that box and interact with someone different from us.  And when that happens, it is a pitiful shame because diversity is our biggest capital gain.  What I love most about music is the union it brings despite any other differences.

So much for being silence huh?  More like big mouth opinion girl.  Anyways, I had no idea where this was going until ink spilled onto the virtual page.  I am back in my head again.  So much going on in the world.  Everything lately is ripped from the headlines.
