I'm a huge fan of Pink. A couple of weeks ago, my sister put in a CD of her's that I hadn't heard yet. On it was a song called Dear Mr President.
The first time I heard it, it made me kind of angry. But then I just decided to listen to it without making judgements about Pink's political beliefs.
I came away with a few questions of my own - even though I thought the song was a bit misdirected. I don't know - the song makes me think - which in today's music industry is rare for me (well, listening to My Humps really changed my life as well. Yeah, not so much).
My favorite questions from the song:
What kind of father would take his own daughter's rights away?
And what kind of father might hate his own daughter if she were gay?
And my least favorite:
How do you sleep while the rest of us cry?
How do you dream when a mother has no chance to say good-bye?
How do you walk with your held high?
I would really like to know what the rest of you think of this song. Seriously.
