    One of my morning rituals is to see what musicians have birthdays. Today marks the birth of Kris Kristofferson (along with Don Henley and Cyndi Lauper). Seeing Kristofferson’s name reminded me of one of my favorite songs that feels like a good soundtrack for today, so I thought I would pass it along.

    am I young enough to believe in revolution
    am I strong enough to get down on my knees and pray
    am I high enough on the chain of evolution
    to respect myself, and my brother and my sister
    and perfect myself in my own peculiar way

    I get lazy, and forget my obligations
    I’d go crazy, if I paid attention all the time
    and I want justice, but I’ll settle for some mercy
    on this holy road through the universal mind

    am I young enough to believe in revolution
    am I strong enough to get down on my knees and pray
    am I high enough on the chain of evolution
    to respect myself, and my brother and my sister
    and perfect myself in my own peculiar way

    I got lucky, I got everything I wanted
    I got happy, there wasn’t nothing else to do
    And I’d be crazy not to wonder if I’m worthy
    Of the part I play in this dream that’s coming true

    am I young enough to believe in revolution
    am I strong enough to get down on my knees and pray
    am I high enough on the chain of evolution
    to respect myself, and my brother and my sister
    and perfect myself in my own peculiar way

     Amen.

    Peace,
    Milton
