SOUND: Marvin Gaye, "What's Going On"

I woke up with Marvin Gaye’s “What’s Going On” in my head. And - having heard this song in some family member’s house, some portion of allllll of my life - it just occurred to me that Marvin’s not asking a question.

The song is a statement - a recognition of the chaos all around him. And if you listen, there’s a curious call to action at the end: “C'mon talk to me / So you can see / What's going on”

Oh, Marvin. Thank you for knowing way before most of us that communication and a truthful telling of our stories is key to progress - or rather, what you were seeking: love and understanding.

If you’ve got a little more time, stick around, listen to Devon Franklin WOW us with a comparison of living a life of faith to developing a full-length movie!
