With the news that John McCain and Aretha Franklin both passed away this week, it begins a new era of music and politics. While both had their detractors in the music and political landscape, both had changed America for the great. One was a maverick in the Senate, and the other was a maverick on the music scene. It frustrates me to say that even though I’m a liberal there are no other senators that I can say that I would probably vote for if there was a radical liberal out there or somebody that was corrupt. John McCain brought a Lotta good to this country and I almost voted for him in the 2008 election’s. John McCain tired of the same cancer that had taken Ted Kennedy nine years to the date earlier and that can sometimes bring life. John McCain and Aretha Franklin are the circle of life. When my mother passed away she began another circle of life with her ashes. Her ashes were spread in the real mountains of Montana and I am pretty sure that there are flowers and trees growing from my mother ashes. just like my mother, there will be pain for that was close to John McCain and early Aretha Franklin. I found this rose growing outside my apartment, enjoy the circle of life. Miss you mom, and I hope you are living it up with the Senator and the music icons.
