Happy (Would Be) Birthday, Joe Strummer

Just a few more minutes left of Joe Strummer's birthdate. I've thought on and off all day about how to mark the occasion. But, I think I'll just say this:

Thank you, Joe. Thanks for being you. Thanks for your belief in change. And for your struggles Thanks for how you lived your life. You continue to inspire me. Your passion for people taught me to seek out others' stories. Your philosophy taught me that change is possible...or at very least worth working for. I could go on and on. I so wish I could have heard you play live. I would love to have spoken with you. Your life mattered. And mine is better because of you. Happy birthday.
