I read in the newspaper / They questioned all my friends

On days like today, when the sun is finally out in this cold and miserable country, it is hard to believe it shines down on a planet so close to the abyss. A planet where resources are running out, governments are becoming increasingly criminal, and corporations are making our decisions and destroying the environment.

Sometimes I despair. I lose faith. I think there’s nothing we can do.

Then I remember The Nightwatchman.

“Usually when people are sad, they don’t do anything. They just cry over their condition. But when they get angry, they bring about a change.” – Malcolm X
