If you’re not part of the future then get out of the way

Today I was making a mix CD for a friend and I listened closer to John Mellencamp’s 2001 song Peaceful World. Certainly a peaceful world would be nice. Below is an excerpt from from the lyrics:

Racism lives in the U.S. today
Better get hip to what Martin Luther King had to say
I don’t want my kids being brought up this way
Hatred to each other is not okay
Well I’m not a preacher just a singer son
But I can see more work to be done
It’s what you do and not what you say
If you’re not part of the future then get out of the way

These words ring very true at this time and apply to many things from my personal life, to St. Louis, to the nation and world.

“It’s what you do and not what you say.”
Wow, so true.

To all you St. Louis “leaders” and the religious zealots out there:
You are not part of my future. Get the fuck out of my way!

Steve
