“No One Is Born Hating”

By January 11, 2016February 24th, 2018No Comments

I put this music montage together some years back but decided to post it today as another cry of protest against the hateful rhetoric dominating so much of the current political discourse in the United States.

The music is my own “Old Hatreds Will Someday Pass” (title drawn from President Obama’s first inaugural address). The text is composed of selected verses from The Book of the World, which I edited and published in 2008.
