Bob Marley

             Bob Marley is best known for his dread locks and Rustafarian music. Second to that he is also known for his strong political opinions. His tendency to "tell it like it is" is very evident in this song whose message is that everyone should be treated equal and we should stand together as the human race and fight for these rights. Bob Marley stresses that the people who are experiencing discrimination must let their voices of injustice be heard and there is no better time than the present. Waiting for God to come and "take away all the pain and make everybody feel high" is not the answer. The problems exist now and we all have to take a stand and fight for equality and against prejudices. We need to do that for ourselves and for each other. I interpret his message as saying that we are stronger in numbers and that in masse we can rise up together, present a united front and make a difference in this never ending fight for justice and dignity.
             One of the main reasons why I chose this artist and song is because Bob Marley is religious man. In this song he writes, "Most people think great God will come from the sky Take away ev'rything, and make ev'rybody feel high But if you know what life is worth You would look for yours on earth." Here Bob is telling us to ask for God's help because we need it. God is not just sitting idly in heaven waiting for us to die; he is here with us right now listening and watching over us. God is always there to help and guide us all we have to do is seek him and he is here to help us through life. Bob's message says to ask God for help now. Bob Marley believes that most people only go to God for help during tragedies and catastrophic events and that God is also here to help with everyday problems and causes as. .

             My personal opinion strongly supports Bob Marley's opinion. My personal belief is deeply rooted in Catholicism and I too believe that nothing is possible without God in your life.
