Spring’s Hope Eternal

24 Mar

“If a man loses pace with his companions, perhaps it is because he hears a different drummer. Let him step to the music which he hears, however measured, or far away.”                                     -Thoreau

History tells us that long term changes in social attitudes among human populations mostly involve a slow and arduous process involving argument, discussion, political upheaval and quite often intense strife and even war.

It usually begins somewhere and at some place in time with an outspoken individual or group who, whether inadvertently or by design, lead the world in a new and different direction.

And while we all have a voice and whether or not we perform in solo or in grand chorus, the trick it seems is to not be so loud, nor strike the proper chord, as it is to be singing the proper song…and then of course, to be able to recognize harmony when we hear it.

We’ve sung the songs of Monarchy, intolerance, slavery, racism, nuclear proliferation and at other times we’ve sung the songs of rebellion, freedom, democracy and peace.

Many tunes sound melodic and can get your toes a-tappin’ and a crowd to sing along, but how do we know when and if it’s the proper song to sing ?

And what about that drumbeat we hear? Should we march…or sit, and wait to serve another? Or beat our own drum and serve ourselves?

Hopefully someday, no matter the beat or  step, we’ll all head in the same direction and sing to a tune that can and will include all of our voices.
