It’s too easy to find a quote or one-liner that supports your position on this issue or any of hundreds of others. What I want to say about all of this, know the issue. Know the issues that matter to you and move forward. Change is happening.

“I love songs about horses, railroads, land, judgment day, family, hard times, whiskey, courtship, marriage, adultery, separation, murder, war, prison, rambling, damnation, home, salvation, death, pride, humor, piety, rebellion, patriotism, larceny, determination, tragedy, rowdiness, heart-break, and love. And Mother. And God.” — Johnny Cash
