Music for Democracy

Can I have a minute of your time?

and another minute....

It's long, I know, but worth your time. At the end of his interview he is asked about what inspires him and he says it can be anyone or anything. Right now his hero is a woman in Bali who became a midwife. An average person who is making a difference in her community. That's his hero.

Community building is very important to me. I suppose that's why I put so much time and effort into fMh, my neighborhood garden and the local community radio station. Listening to Michael today was my inspiration that I, mfranti, the wife, mom, neighbor from Salt Lake, can put forth even more effort and hopefully do some good in this life.(read:I don't have to have mad guitar, singing, writing, photo skills do be worth something)

For those of you that are not familiar with Michael Franti or have recently been introduced to him (don't know how that could of happened) I'd really like to know your thoughts on this interview.
