Forty years from now, our grandchildren will sit perched on our laps listening to our story about the day when everything changed. We will paint for them a vivid picture detailing exactly where we were and what we felt at that historic moment. They will sit in awe as they wonder what it would have been like to be alive during one of the most important events in human history.
They will listen to the story over and over again. They will beg us to tell it just one last time. And we will, because we will understand the importance of passing these memories down to our ancestors.
On January 20th 2009, America changed. We changed. Everything changed forever. We knew there was no going back.
Because on that day, this happened.
All other events of this day will pale in comparison to the discovery of this video. The credit for the find could go to the Fearsome Foursome radio hosts, but I like to believe that fate had a little something to do with this.
“We were looking for a song to play and I found this CD just laying on the table,” says WBUQ host Andrew “Sugarcubes” Wakelee. “We found a track listing for this song and I couldn’t believe it.”
“I like to think an angel left it here for us to find,” admitted Tali “Dr. Lovebuckets” Zangari.
Having the incredible honor to listen to this duet makes me never want to write again, because I know deep in my heart that I could never create anything as beautiful.
Can we now say that we as a human race have come as close to artistic perfection as we ever will?
In my opinion? Yes we can.
(The Fearsome Foursome can be heard every Tuesday from 10 to midnight on WBUQ 91.1 The Revolution)
