In 2008 on July 4th, I was watching fireworks on tv and got pissed when a bunch of folks complained about how the displays weren't bright enough or loud enough or long enough. I was pissed because these people had NO idea what America is all about and what our ancestors and service men and women have gone through and are STILL going through, to give them the very right to bitch and moan about what they think this country should be. So, I wrote a poem called, "Bring Me Your Tired" and sent it off to my Bro, J.D. Nash to do with whatever he wanted.

A year later, he sent it back to me after he had worked it up and set it to spoken voice with bagpipes in the background. The musical arrangement is by Shawn Ames (Backlash for those of you who don't know him) A few weeks later, a mutual friend of ours, Tim Wozny, set it to video and I'm sending it along to you all.

Yes, I'm proud of my work, but what J.D. and Tim did with it is amazing and Ron and I both sat here in tears watching the finished product. The woman sitting with the man who has a veteran's hat on, is Ron's dad, Willis (Bill) Cain, a man whom I respect and admire to no end.

J.D. has submitted the piece to the Native E-Music Awards for Best Political Song and the main reason I hope it wins, is so that perhaps people will be reminded of what America TRULY stands for.

So my friends, I submit it to you and hope that you literally do NOT enjoy it, but rather it gives you cause to think, reflect, and be grateful for the freedom we enjoy at the expense of the countless.
