Sandy Hook - "Let Us Move On"

"For this is short, And it will pass"
Now that it's been a few days and the news cycle is beginning to resemble normalcy, I felt like it was appropriate that I post the track below. If you're like me, you've used the Sandy Hook mass tragedy as a time to reflect on both personal and societal beliefs regarding everything from mental health to gun control. There's part of me that thinks we're doing something as a society to escalate the perceived acceptability of committing such an act because events like this just haven't happened in the past. The good news is, there's a lot of momentum as far as getting the ball rolling and attempting to eliminate partisan lines as far as helping to find a solution.

By no means does the track below mean that I'm suggesting people should get past the grieving stage. Moving on can be construed in a positive way that moves toward worthwhile change, which is where I have faith we're moving. The somber, emotional tone that @didoofficial and @kendricklamar establish on Let Us Move On seems appropriate and hopefully it's a reminder that we're all in this together on an emotional level. For those of you wanting to cop the track, check the iTunes link below and be on the look out for Dido's new album coming out in early March 2013. Feel free and follow along with the lyric video below too...
