Music is a normal part of my routine and is what gets me through my drive to work. I also take that 30 minutes to think about everything from things I need to get done at home to what is going on in the world. The latter has taken up much more of my pondering time than the former. Mix that with the perfect song, and here I am writing this op-ed.
The song is Hero, by Chad Kroeger and Josey Scott. It was recorded for the 2002 film, Spider-Man. Before I lose you, let me state why this song is perfect. 2020 has been a year that has felt like someone took a couple different horror movies and spliced them together. We’ve had to face a pandemic, racial tensions, a flat-lining economy, looting and rioting, and the fear of murder hornets. Oh, by the way, its also a presidential election year and that is its own horror movie.
