I am making a 70s Playlist to listen to as I write during NaNoWriMo, which starts in one week from tomorrow.
As I pulled up Simon and Garfunkel, I came across the 7 O’clock News/Silent Night that I’d heard as a young teen, but could not have understood completely.
Tonight I listened to it and wept at the juxtaposition they created and how so little has changed. Except there is no 7 O’clock news anymore. But with 24/7 news, it makes it even more alarming because Silent Night would have to be on a constant loop to accompany the world’s horrors.
Young people need to hear this. I hope some will React to it on YouTube come the holiday season.
There is no “season” this sadness is appropriate, but the message is very much needed every day of the year.
