This is a Patriots Journey post.
I enjoy good live music. The wife and I don’t get to as many concerts and festivals as we used to, but we still make a few. One of the things that has always amazed me is how folks of all backgrounds and beliefs can get together and enjoy good music. It isn’t always as obvious at small bars or single band concerts, but attend a big outdoor concert and you will see what I mean. It always makes me proud to see people who would normally not even speak to each other, able to come together as Americans. This is one of the few things that gives me hope for the future of our country, the fact that we can still find some common ground. At a concert we have something that we can discuss as Americans without the divisiveness of politics or religion. Once the show is over we go our separate ways, but for that brief period we are just people enjoying music.
