debs: (Falling in love with each second song)

As I posted about earlier, I wore purple today in remembrance of all the young people who feel ostracized and alienated because of their sexuality, and especially for those who have chosen to take their own lives as a result of homophobic abuse in their homes or at their schools. While thinking about what sort of song to post this evening, I remembered Patty Griffin's "Tony", a song that made me sob the first time I heard it alone in my bedroom six or seven years ago. It seems like we, as a society, should've grown in the twelve years since this song was recorded, but I look at those six young men to whom this day was dedicated and I wonder.

In an effort not to be a total downer, I will also post this song in honor of the birthday of Viggo Mortensen. Until very recently (ugh, the film version of The Road) Mr. Mortensen has been one of my very favorites, and this song still makes me think of him.
