One this day in 1953 Eugene O’Neill died at the age of 65.

O’Neill is one of my favorite playwrights and wrote two of my favorite plays: A Long Day’s Journey Into Night and The Hairy Ape. They both made me think beyond my world and into the greater and gritty world of pain, rejection, addiction, and dysfunction.

Thank you, Mr. O’Neill. You made me see that writing from “the gut” can lead to many beautifully crafted works.

will.i.am :
no one on this planet is truly experienced to handle the obstacles we face today…
Terror, fear, lies, agendas, politics, money, all the above…
It’s all scary…

Martin Luther King didn’t have experience to lead…
Kennedy didn’t have experience to lead…
Susan B. Anthony…
Nelson Mandella…
Rosa Parks…
Gandhi…
Anne Frank…
and everyone else who has had a hand in molding the freedoms we have and take for granted today…

no one truly has experience to deal with the world today…

they just need “desire, strength, courage ability, and passion” to change…
and to stand for something even when people say it’s not possible…

America would not be here “today” if we didn’t stand and fight for
change “yesterday”…
Everything we have as a “people” is because of the “people” who fought for
change…
and whoever is the President has to realize we have a lot of changing to do

I’m not trying to convince people to see things how i do…
I produced this song to share my new found inspiration and how I’ve been moved…
I hope this song will make you feel…
love…
and think…
and be inspired just like the speech inspired me…
