My friend Sheela Repoley forwarded this video to me, and I had to play it three times in a row. It’s so refreshing to hear a person of the stature and influence of Alicia Keys make a statement about the insanity of the violence around the world. Her message is an answer to a question she was asked by a group: Why are we here? Her answer is that we are here for each other. So how did we get to the place where we allow groups of insanely greedy people and even our own government to kill people in our name.
