Eminem’s call to mend

eminem recovery

“I’m not afraid, to take a stand/everybody, come take my hand/we’ll walk this road together, through the storm/whatever weather.  Just lettin’ you know that you’re not alone/holler if you feel like you’ve been down the same road.  And I just can’t keep livin’ this way, so starting today/I’m breaking out of this cage …”  Eminem

I was offered half a headphone recently.  Sat, shoulder to shoulder,  listening to this song filling a young mind with strength and hope.   And while Ipods and headphones are often viewed as   ‘anti-social’, they’re also valuable in providing a way to tune out to a world that rubs up against us so harshly these days.  They also provide an intimate connection between friends (or someone new) drawn close by the limited length of an ear piece cord.  And EMINEM is often viewed as a ‘bad influence’ but his latest album, Recovery, is his calling to fans to mend—as we all, in time, must.
