Get Together

I was about 15 years old and I went to one of my first concerts. It was an outdoor 2 day event called "no nukes". Included was Jackson Brown, CSN, Michael Jackson, and tons more of in my opinion the best of the best. At the end of day two, I was so inspired and full of joy and hope and it was an amazing experience.

Suddenly it got silent amount the thousands of people there and all the performers came out holding hands. They said "let's unite as one" All of the people there connected arm to arm and we sang "get together" I have never felt so much love, connection, and a sense of belonging in my life. Like all was well with the world. After the song hundreds cried but all around we were hugging and smiling.



Love is but a song we sing
fears' the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
or make the angels cry

Though the dove is on the wing
and you may not know why

*Come on people now
smile on your brother
everybody get together
and try to love one another right now

Some may come and some may go
He will surely pass
When the one that left us here
returns for us at last
We are but a moment's sunlight
fading in the grass

*Come on people now
smile on your brother
everybody get together
try to love one another right now

*Come on people now
smile on your brother
everybody get together
try to love one another right now

*Come on people now
smile on your brother
everybody get together
try to love one another right now

Seems to have been a perfect experience.
I wish I could have been there.

I wish we could get some of those people..Most still around and playing like CSN Jackson Brown, Joni Mitchell... and get a benefit concert together. I just saw CSN and Jackson Brown last year in concert as well as Dennis De Young (Styx) Music sure does bring people together...
