Don McLean- American Pie (with Lyrics) – YouTube

I remember when my mom used to mumble this song. And anytime it came on the radio she would turn it up. Now I am going to admit, I do not know what the original meaning of this song is. But I know what it means to me. To me it means that the world is not the same. That it is forever changing, things will never be the same. Unfortunately society is forgetting where we came from. We forget that we need to be forgiving and love each others. Now it is literally a dog eat dog world. All we are worried about is the newest technology. And though people feel we will get back to the good old days, I don’t think we will. I fear that we are to far gone to remember what it used to be like. So when I listen to this song I mourn the world I grew up in and I find myself praying for the world that my children are growing up in and will shape tomorrow.
