Streets of Fire

Civil Unrest: Streets of FireGiven all of the social unrest we’ve witnessed both domestically and abroad, this week’s  “Say It In Song” pick is a 1978 Bruce Springsteen hit from his album “Darkness on the Edge of Town”: Streets of Fire.

This is dedicated to all of those people who walk streets of fire to protest against broken promises made by elected officials.

It’s dedicated to the women who, 40 years after Roe v. Wade, are still battling for reproductive freedom and the right to make decisions about their own bodies.

It is also dedicated to the LGBT community and all of us who support that community with the understanding that striking down the Defense of Marriage Act (DOMA) and California’s Prop. 8 may pave the way to equality but we’re still not there yet.

And, for good measure, this is meant to acknowledge those actively engaged in the struggle for equality by exercising their right to vote — regardless of the Supreme Court’s recent decision to strike down a key provision of the Voting Rights Act of 1965.

When those in office pay more attention to their own needs instead of the needs of their constituents, protest and activism will be the result…there will be streets of fire.
