And did they get you to trade
Your heroes for ghosts?
Hot ashes for trees?
Hot air for a cool breeze?
Cold comfort for change?
And did you exchange
A walk-on part in the war
For a lead role in a cage?

Pink Floyd - Wish You Were Here (1975)

And featured at the top of this post from Mr. Louis Rawlins. It's a wonderful, personal, honest post, but those opening words from Roger Waters ( because we know it's Roger that pens those kinda lyrics don't we ...) just reminded me of the ongoing importance of not letting go of the importance of people. Particularly as we enter 2017 and watch as a few corrupt people will continue to wrest away all that is important to us, our children and our children's children and our children's children's children (with a nod of appreciation to The Moody Blues.) in favor of a few bucks and the corporations that they are beholden to.

Amazing to think that is was over 40 years ago that those words sprang forth with the force of Floyd and the anger of Waters. And only now is the world waking up and realising that maybe people are important.
