Revolution.

I can't help but feel like my generation is apart of something greater. One massive movement for change; a change for the better. Dictatorships are being replaced by democracy and greater freedom of speech and equality and opportunity.

Coldplay's newest song "Every teardrop is a waterfall" is compelling and uplifting. I can't help but place this song (in my own mind, that is) as the theme song for the revolutions that are taking place world-wide. Check out the static youtube video of their newest song with the attached link!
