When everything's said and done, Ain't it a Son of a Gun? - Not like a Seventh Son

When we got on the bus, many of us Deadheads were misfits. The music, the scene taught love and respect in it's sincerest form. The current climate in our world is stormy with varying opinions and insights. We are bickering. I hate it. We all want to express ourselves. To do so the anything less than respect is ludicrous. A week ago I wondered what Jerry thought of his band members. Now I wonder............
what Jerry thinks of us? Seeing a recent quarrel resolved between two brothers, one extending a hand, the other reaching back, I realize we really have learned. May we each continue to learn, to love, to grow, never forgetting to respect each other along the way.

Well it's a good start. I've been following the fuss over at Boing Boing as well and it's all, well, damnably unseemly.

respect is something that's so easy for us to give & yet it means so much to the person we show respect. it's something we all want, in one form or another.

I hate travelling on buses, and petty arguments, just let people get on with it and try not to get involved. Everyone has thier own opinion, that's the beauty of the human race.

That is so very true. I guess everybody gets all worked up when something so beautiful as the Dead's music is at stake. Everybody wants to hoard it for themselves, but we musn't forget to respect and love one another.

Our leaders show so little of it, it's up to each of us to carry the torch.

I read that Viggo Mortenson was so into his role as Aragorn in the Lord of the Rings Trilogy because it was an opportunity to portray a leader with strength, courage, humility and... respect, in this time when our real-life leaders are so uninspired.

All good stories, people, incidents, experiences, thoughts, music...inspire us to never give up hope, to believe than everything and anything is possible.
