Reason to sing the blues.
The Mississippi River delta is currently in danger of severe flooding, perhaps the worst since The Great Flood of 1927. This region has a profound impact on American culture and music, and I am holding it in my heart right now.
It is so hard to sit by and watch these sorts of things happen to good people. Besides prayer, we can reach out in ways that positively impact those who are affected by natural disaster. One of the best ways that I can think of is to help by supporting the American Red Cross.
Note: the above photo can be located a thttp://coverlaydown.com/wp/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/guitarfloat.jpg. While not related to the Mississippi River in any way, I feel that it illustrates the resilience of the region and its music.
