There was a move made a while back called “The Falcon and the Snowman” and it was about who selling America out and it was a good movie and the soundtrack alone was equally as good as the movie and one song that sticks in my brain today is this one as a “normal” environment we have known for years is changing and are we in a place that is no longer familiar to us in many ways…in watching our government with trying to agree and collaborate with solutions, which doesn’t seem to be going very well, this song keeps kicking around in my head (lyrics below) “this could be a miracle”?  How many snowmen are there out there?  Anyway the lyrics seem to somewhat say this is not the same as the country I grew up in as we watch current events and values get replaced  with new ones that seem to leave out some of the greatness of the past, inequality seems to be the big one that comes to mind. 





A little piece of you
The little peace in me
Will die
For this is not America
Blossom falls to bloom
This season
Promise not to stare
Too long
For this is not a miracle
There was a time
A storm that blew so pure
For this could be the biggest sky
And i could have
The faintest idea
Snowman melting
From the inside
Falcon spirals
To the ground
So bloody red
Tomorrows clouds
A little piece of you
The little piece in me
Will die
For this is not America
There was a time
A wind that blew so young
For this could be the biggest sky
And i could have the faintest idea
This could be the biggest sky
This could be a miracle
