Tao of the Day  
For those fatigued by staying aware, buying the right thing, doing the right thing, discerning the best thing to do, writing the letters and the blogs, witnessing reality, trying to effect positive change.

Tell me why the grass was greener
Years ago
I swear it used to grow here
But no more, here
Tell me why on this hill
All the birds that used to come fly here
Are going to die here
Tell me why I need to know
Sometimes I wish I didn't have to know
Oh, show me

Hey World, what you say?
Should I stick around for another day or two?
Don't give up on me
I won't give up on you
Just believe in me
Like I believe in you

Tell me why on the corner
All the kids that used to come to run here
Loading guns here
Tell me why it's OK
To kill in the name of the gods we pray
Tell me who said it's OK
To die in the name of the lies we say
Tell me why there's child soldiers
Tell me why they close the borders
Tell me how to fight disease
Tell me now, won't you please?
The only thing I want to do
Is be in the arms of someone
Who believes in me
Like in believe in you

Hey World, what you say? Should I stick around for another day?
Hey World, what you say? Should I stick around for another day?
Hey World, what you say? Should I stick around for another day or two?
Don't give up on me I won't give up
I try, I try, I try, I try
I try, I try, I try, I try for you
Don't give up on me
I cry, I cry, I cry, I cry
I cry, I cry, I cry, I cry for you
Just believe in me like I believe

Hey World, what you say?
Hey World, what you say?
Hey World, what you say?
Should I stick around for another day?
Hey World, what you stay?
Should I stick around for another day or two?

Don't give up on me
I won't give up on me
Just believe in me
I believe in you
Don't give up

Hey World, what you say?
Hey World, what you say?
Hey World, what you say?

If you're not outraged, you're not paying attention.
Ignorance is bliss.
Thank you for keeping your eyes and ears and minds open.
I know it gets exhausting.
But it matters.
