Rise up this mornin’, smiled with the risin’ sun
Three little birds pitch by my doorstep
Singin’ sweet songs of melodies pure and true,
Sayin’, “This is my message to you-ou-ou:”

‘Cause every little thing gonna be all right!”

Bob Marley (6 February 1945 – 11 May 1981)

Thanks, Bob. Happy birthday, brother, and thanks. Thank you for your efforts to combine political activism and racial awareness with sweet summer jams. Thank you for being a voice of a nation and inspiring people around the world. We all need to hear that every little thing gonna be all right every once in a while – even as we work to make the world a better place.
