Why can’t we live together? Self-destruction!

“Why can’t we live together?”, used to sing Timmy Thomas back in 1972. You please tell me…
Why Cant We Live TogetherAlthough there’s alas nothing new, I can’t help myself feeling in state of shock each time I see some of my alter egos killed or injured for the sake of their supposedly differences. Be this because of the color of their skin, their religion, their sexual orientation or whatsoever. And God knows how we may unfortunately see things like this happening every single day on our planet.

Of course, some of you might object that it’s not the purpose of this platform to talk about this kind of subject. But these tragedies are nothing but the consequence of the behavior of so many of us remaining, consciously or not, under the power of preconceived ideas. Beginning with the one we expressed as an introduction to these few lines.
True, we’re supposed to be talking about music. But as far as I humbly know, music is way from only being about shakin’ our asses. As beautiful as they may be, as a matter of fact.

Music, to many of those who’ve got their names into history, has been embraced as a tool to express themselves about the state of the world. Itself giving birth to art forms such as Blues, Soul, Reggae or Hip-Hop to name but a few along with time. And if ever considering that by being in the position to communicate such as the way we do on a (supposedly) wide scale is like havin’ a fragment of power, it’s then our responsability (if not duty) to react whenever we feel like we have to. Regardless the bad reactions we may get, as long as it will contribute to hopefully make the world better…

Why can’t we live together? You just ask those who think that because someone looks/acts/feels different, he or she deserves to be condamned.

No one is superior because of this or because of that. Like it or not, we’re all built the same at the end. With our hopes and dreams, but also with our fears and nightmares. With what makes our strength as our weakness. And the color of the blood flowing in our veins being the same: red!

No one is superior, but we’re all different. Which makes the world so exciting as so diverse. We’ve got so many to learn from each other and therefore become better as individuals. Then eventually come to a day when we’ll cease askin’ ourselves why can’t we live together…

This is pretty much the same when speakin’ of music. With emotion, intelligence, sense we can find everywhere, whatever the genre may be. As long as we (just) open and therefore change our ears/minds…
