Inktober 2020

Day 27: Music

With the Supreme Court confirmation yesterday, all I can think about is Don McLean’s song, “American Pie” – where he sings about the day the music died.’

Of course, paradoxically enough, this could be the day women’s rights die — along with LGBTQA+, immigrants, and people of color.

I have no words.

Progress, not perfection.

Ink it up.

I thought the name of this song was, “The Day the Music Died” for years – but here it is:
