    Musicians often use their songs as a vehicle to make cultural or political observations. A persistent trope in modern music has been the anti-war song.

Ultimately I think learning the truth of a covered-up period in history is the only way society can overcome these hard times. Part of the problem with America, it follows, is that we have never truly acknowledged the evil of slavery.

  • The Lunchbox Movie Analysis

    After having watched The Lunchbox as well as The Piano, I've come to realize how well these movies demonstrate the correlation between love and happiness. With the help of characters like Saajan Fernandes, Ila, Ada McGrath, and George Baines, the directors are capable of showing us just how important partnership is in our lives as human beings.
