Today…on Sir Bob’s Birthday


Some people may hear Bob’s songs and think, “not for me”, well that is the thing, his songs are for everyone. No matter where you are from in the world, your creed, race, beliefs…no matter what, he wrote his songs to flow across boundaries. He expanded his mind and body and as a result, realized that we are ONE. He wrote from his heart; if you take a moment “to smell the roses” by closing your mind’s eye to the outside world and listen…really listen…to the lyrics of his songs, only then can you realize that his songs sing only to you…Bob’s songs are personal.

Bob Marley’s songs are personal, because they speak of what humans, on a whole, go through…our day to day individual challenges. He tells of ways to survive the world and how to unite and understand each other, to live with peace in our hearts. His songs also tell us how to think for ourselves and to follow our hearts. Bob never sings about negative things only positive…and yes of course humorous at times. His words are a comfort and evoke a sense of togetherness for generations to come.
